Geospatial Assessment Applications

Crop Explorer provides geospatial data for assessing crop conditions. Weather, drought, soil moisture, and vegetation condition data are displayed as maps and time-series charts. Explore the data by geographic region or via Commodity Explorers.

GADAS is a web-based GIS with weather, drought, and vegetation condition data integrated with crop masks, land cover, and infrastructure data. Geospatial tools such as hourly disaster alerts and tools to calculate agricultural areas are integrated.

GLAM provides near real-time and science quality 8-day Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) data from NASA’s Terra and Aqua satellites, MODIS sensor. Users select different administrative areas and crop masks to plot NDVI curves.

G-REALM provides time-series data of water level variations, as measured by radar altimeter data, for some of the world's largest lakes and reservoirs, allowing users to monitor water supply used for irrigation, power generation, and consumption.

Tropical Cyclone Monitor provides observation data–storm tracks–by the National Hurricane Center (NHC), Central Pacific Hurricane Center, and Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC). Storms from 2005 to present can be searched by storm name or by year.

WMO Station Explorer displays the latest World Meteorological Organization station data. Users select one or more stations to chart precipitation and temperature. Charts compare this year to selected years for daily, dekadal and monthly data.
