Esri has signed a Space Act Agreement with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
The agreement focuses on extending access to the broader global community of NASA’s geospatial content for research and exploration—including new datasets from nearly 100 spaceborne sensors, measuring atmospheric health, land-based phenomena, and characteristics of the oceans.
Partner efforts under this agreement will add to the existing NASA data in ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World, a collection of geographic information and services, according to Esri.
NASA data will be increasingly available to more than 10 million users of geographic information system (GIS) software in ArcGIS and Open Geospatial Consortium-based formats.
