NASA is well known for providing high quality satellite data for long-term science research, but application users, operational agencies, and even researchers often need data much sooner than routine science processing offers. Since 2009, NASA’s Land, Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS (LANCE) has provided data and data products generally within three hours of satellite instrument observations. The more than 200 Near Real-Time (NRT) data products available through LANCE, along with the services and data distribution strategies developed by the LANCE team, have helped transform how Earth-observing data are used.
As LANCE celebrates its tenth anniversary, this webinar provides an opportunity to look back on its history, accomplishments, and provide users with an overview of the what is available. Join us as we provide an overview of LANCE by answering the following questions: what is LANCE, why was it started and what near-real time data does it provide? How are LANCE data expedited? What is the difference between NRT data and the standard quality products that NASA makes available? How can I access LANCE data and Imagery? Who uses LANCE and what for?
Participate in our monthly data discovery and access webinars to learn more about NASA Earth science data, services and tools.
