Earth Information Center will deliver critical data directly into the hands of people in ways and forms that they can immediately use. It is enabled by resources at NASA centers from coast to coast, in close coordination with other government agencies, industry partners, and community groups and members.
The center will provide a whole Earth view down to local information to visualize our changing planet – from temperatures in our cities to sea level rise, greenhouse gas emissions to agricultural productivity. This center will showcase large, awe-inspiring visualizations, as well as interactive media, stories, and narratives to inspire action.
For more than five decades, NASA has been collecting and delivering data on Earth’s land, water, ice and atmosphere. Now a new era of earth science has begun. NASA will launch a fleet of state-of-the-art satellites that will make up the Earth System Observatory, which will create a comprehensive 4D view of Earth like never before. NASA, in collaboration with federal partners, will arm decision makers with the information they need to mitigate, adapt and respond to climate change through the new Earth Information Center. Between a new satellite observatory in the sky and an information center here on Earth, NASA is helping protect our planet for the next generation.
