NASA's Earth Now is an application that visualizes recent global climate data from Earth Science satellites, including surface air temperature, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, ozone, and water vapor as well as gravity and sea level variations. Data sets are visually described using "false color" maps. Color-coded legends are provided to indicate relative strength or weakness of an environmental condition. The resulting 3D model of the Earth may be rotated by a single finger stroke, and may also be zoomed in or out by pinching 2 fingers. It was developed by the Earth Science Communications and Visualization Technology Applications and Development Teams at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, with support from NASA Headquarters.

Bug Fixes including:

Ratings and Reviews
This app is awesome! I find it very useful as a visual to show people the current CO2 atmospheric data when engaging with people about the dangers we face do to a lack of coverage by the media. NASA does incredible things on a shoestring budget! Earth now gives the public a direct link to our satellites most up to date data of earth’s natural systems. Thanks NASA keep up the hard work!
Thank you so much! The app has need updating for a long time. Now it doesn't have lag, is up to date, includes more data, etc. I am so glad to be able to use it now.
User friendly, although I'm. It sure most of us would find a daily use for this app. Saying that, I spent twenty minutes just scrolling through the screens and selecting the individual satellites. Beautiful and deceptively entertaining. I think I am enjoying it more than I should, but the graphics are mesmerizing!
