A mobile device application created by NASA visualizes recent global climate data from Earth science satellites, including air temperature, sea surface salinity, carbon monoxide, ozone, and water vapor, as well as gravity and sea level variations. This app is an Open GL simple 3D object viewer for the Apple IOS and Android that leverages the “Eyes on the Earth” Earth science data processing pipeline to reformat the images into mobile phone compatibility.

This work was done by Kevin J. Hussey, Paul R. Doronila, Anton I. Kulikov, Jeffrey Lim, Christopher N. Petrie, W. Michael Greene, Randal K. Jackson, and Jason J. Hyon of Caltech; and Justin M. Moore and Andrea Boeck of Mooreboeck Inc. for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. For more information, contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
