LANCE: NASA Near Real-Time Data and Imagery

NASA's Land, Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS (LANCE) supports users interested in monitoring a wide variety of natural and man-made phenomena using near real-time (NRT) data and imagery that are made available much quicker than routine processing allows.

Most data products are available within 3 hours from satellite observation. Imagery are generally available 3-5 hours after observation. If latency is not a primary concern, users are encouraged to use the standard science products, which are created using the best available ancillary, calibration and ephemeris information.
