New United States VIIRS Today Page

The University of Wisconsin Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC) and the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) are pleased to announce the launch of the VIIRS Today website:

https://ge.ssec.wisc.edu/viirs-today/

This site provides an easy to navigate display of S-NPP and NOAA-20 VIIRS true color, false color and Day/Night Band Imagery over fixed tiles covering the Contiguous United States (CONUS) and offshore waters. Users can drill down to view imagery at 2km, 1km and 250m spatial resolution for each tile, making it consistent with the popular MODIS Today page.

The site is populated by direct broadcast near-real time data acquired and processed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison using Community Satellite Processing Package (CSPP) software. The imagery is created using CSPP free visualization software Polar2Grid (http://cimss.ssec.wisc.edu/cspp/polar2grid_v2.3.shtml).

More information can be found at the VIIRS Today page in the "About this website" section.
