Summary
Abstract: 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.
