An article over at New Scientist covers NASA’s solution to the overwhelming amount of atmosphere and climate data that they have been receiving due to an advanced monitoring system which they have deployed. The article describes NASA as being swamped by Terabytes of data streaming in daily from the Earth Observing System.
The solution is a simple piece of software that makes the data viewable and navigable through the user-friendly Google Earth interface.
According to NASA, the integrated solution named iEarth, will be available for use by anyone in April.
