The NASA Goddard Earth Sciences (GES) Data and Information Services Center (DISC) is one of 12 NASA data centers that provide Earth science data, information, and services to research scientists, applications scientists, applications users, and students around the world. The GES DISC is the home (archive) of NASA Precipitation and Hydrology, as well as Atmospheric Composition and Dynamics remote sensing data and information.
The Geospatial Interactive Online Visualization ANd aNalysis Infrastructure (GIOVANNI, http://giovanni.gsfc.nasa.gov/), developed at the GES DISC to facilitate data access and exploration, allows users to visualize, analyze, and explore satellite-based datasets using sophisticated analyses and visualizations without downloading data and software, which is particularly suitable for novices to use NASA datasets for STEM activities. In this presentation, we will introduce GIOVANNI and recommend datasets for STEM. Examples of using these datasets will be presented as well.
