    Ryan Boller is working to make NASA’s rich archive of Earth observations more visually discoverable and interactive. As the Data Visualization Lead for the Earth Science Data and Information System project, he manages the Worldview and the Global Imagery Browse Services (GIBS) projects. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Penn State University and a master's from Brown University, both in computer science with emphases on scientific visualization and remote sensing.

    Current Projects

    Worldview

    This app from NASA's EOSDIS provides the capability to interactively browse over 900 global, full-resolution satellite imagery layers and then download the underlying data. Many of the imagery layers are updated daily and are available within three hours of observation - essentially showing the entire Earth as it looks "right now". This supports time-critical application areas such as wildfire management, air quality measurements, and flood monitoring. Arctic and Antarctic views of many products are also available for a "full globe" perspective.

    Global Imagery Browse Services (GIBS)

    The Global Imagery Browse Services (GIBS) from NASA's EOSDIS provides full resolution visual representations of NASA Earth science data in a free, open, and interoperable manner. Through responsive and highly available web services, it enables interactive exploration of data to support a wide range of applications including scientific research, applied sciences, natural hazard monitoring, and outreach.

    GIBS provides quick access to over 900 satellite imagery products, covering every part of the world. Most imagery is updated daily - available within a few hours after satellite observation, and some products span almost 30 years. The satellite imagery can be rendered in your own web client or GIS application and is what powers the Worldview web application.
