NASA satellites have provided open source for more than 50 years

For more than 50 years, NASA satellites have provided open source and publicly available data about Earth’s land, water, temperature, weather, and climate. To improve access to this key information, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson announced the Earth Information Center concept in October 2021 and released the first concept in September 2022 to allow users to see how our planet is changing and provide easy access to the information and resources that support decision makers in developing the tools they need to mitigate, adapt and respond to climate change.

With resources at NASA centers from coast to coast and in close coordination with other government agencies, industry partners, and community groups and members, the Earth Information Center will deliver critical data directly into people’s hands in ways and forms they can use immediately.

The center will provide an all-Earth view down to local information to visualize our changing planet  from temperatures in our cities to sea level rise, greenhouse gas emissions to agricultural productivity. This center will feature large, awe-inspiring visualizations as well as interactive media, stories and narratives that inspire action.
