The goal of Visible Earth is to provide a consistently updated central
catalog/collection point to the superset of Earth science-related
visualizations and images. These images will be useful to the interested
public-at-large, as well as representatives of the media, scientists, and
educators. Whether it be for personal use or for presentations, hopefully this
collection and its organization will ... provide maximum benefit.
Images can be searched using the hierarchical categories or a free-text search.
A meta-data record of each image is provided including file types available,
accreditation, satellite , date, etc. Some records also include a detailed
description of the imagery.
Visible Earth has been developed by Kevin Ward, with special thanks to Nick
Burke, Theresa Held, Mike Heney, David Herring, Michael King, Mike McGunigale,
Horace Mitchell, Robert Simmon, Barbara Summey, and Theo Williams.
