Saturday, December 4, 2010. We are developing an application interface to access open mapping data. This will facilitate user selection and viewing of data which is useful in a number of contexts. Initially, we are focusing on data available from NASA's MODIS project (Specifically the Rapid Response Data at http://rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/) This project accesses data from the Terra and Aqua Spacecraft which cover the entire surface of the earth every one or two days. These near real time images are far more recent and relevant than other sources of imagery. Products available from these spacecraft include observations of land, water and the atmosphere. We identified this data set by reviewing http://www.nasa.gov/open/data.html. Review of this data reveals no existing and intuitive user interface. This is the problem we are attempting to solve: Implementation of a more efficient and intuitive interface to select and review this specific data imagery. This solution can be extrapolated to other data sets once our basic framework is in place.
