Published: Sept. 28, 2018

Looking to learn more about global land data products available from NASA? This webinar focuses on the new NASA land data products produced from the joint NOAA/NASA Suomi-National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-NPP) Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument. During this webinar, we will provide information about how to access and work with these data using a variety of tools from the LP DAAC. Live data discovery and data download demonstrations using NASA’s Earthdata Search and the Application for Extracting and Exploring Analysis Ready Samples (AppEEARS) will be provided. The webinar will conclude with a step-by-step walk-through of a Jupyter Notebook (Python) tutorial demonstrating some basic image processing techniques for working with daily NASA S-NPP VIIRS surface reflectance data.
