VIIRS View Spinning Marble for iPhone
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
You've got the whole world in your hands with the VIIRS View Spinning Marble. VIIRS View wraps gorgeous, high-definition satellite imagery of the Earth around a spinning globe. Swoosh over storm patterns emerging above Antarctica. Zoom in on the fishing fleet lined up along international boundaries off the coast of Japan. Three data sets - visible light, chlorophyll concentration, low-light imagery - provide a glimpse into the type of data meteorologists and climatologists use every day to track the weather and monitor the global environment. Toggle between each VIIRS View to create an endless variety of spinning marbles.
All three modes do work!
The three maps are displayed simultaneously by default. The user can then adjust the intensity of each map type by rotating the smaller globes at the bottom of the screen. Turn the intensity down to zero for any two globes and that will just display the desired satellite type (visible, chlorophyll, or low light). Pretty neat map!
Drag each of the small globes left or right to change the scales underneath and the main display content. Any combination of all 3 channels is possible.
This app is great for showing off a tiny piece of all the great science data that is collected with this sensor! Clean and simple, nicely done!
