NASA Earth science image resolution
Posted by Ross Bagwell, Last modified by Ross Bagwell on 30 September 2020 07:50 PM

NASA Earth science data/imagery is focused on Earth science discipline work (atmosphere, cryosphere, human dimensions, ocean, etc) and not on "close-in" studies
or work. Keeping in mind that NASA Earth science data resolution ranges from 100m down to 15m per pixel (depending on the product), you can understand that a 15m pixel (in a scene/swath that can be up to 100+ miles) is not very usable for small-area studiesĀ or focus.

That being said, you are welcome to explore our imagery and data with the following resources

NASA Earthdata Search - premier search tool for our entire archives -

NASA Worldview - imagery search tool with access to data -

NASA Earthdata - our primary portal for access to Earth science data and information -
