This Web Map Service (WMS) provides full-disk longwave infrared imagery from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES-12) built by NASA and operated by NOAA. Ancillary datasets are also provided for reference. GOES imagery is provided by the NASA GSFC GOES Project Science group (http://goes.gsfc.nasa.gov/). This WMS is supported by the NASA Geosciences Interoperability Office (http://gio.gsfc.nasa.gov/) and the NASA GSFC Software Integration and Visualization Office (http://sivo.gsfc.nasa.gov/) as part of the Modeling, Analysis and Prediction program (MAP05 - http://map05.gsfc.nasa.gov/).
Blue Marble 2002 - MODIS composite land image (land)
The Blue Marble 2002 dataset is a composite of cloud-free land images from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument aboard NASA's Terra satellite. The spatial resolution is approximately 1km. The image was produced by NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. For more information see NASA Earth Observatory (http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/).
Lat/Lon Grid (grid)
The spacing of the lines in this latitude/longitude graticule depend on the map bounding box.
Lat/Lon Grid - 10deg (grid10)
This latitude/longitude graticule has a fixed 10-degree spacing.
National Boundaries (countries)
The country boundary dataset is provided by the Interactive Data Language (IDL - http://www.rsinc.com/idl/) package based on data available from the ESRI ArcWeb Services World Basemap Service (http://www.esri.com/).
USA State Boundaries 1:20M scale (states20m)
The USA State Boundaries 1:20M scale layer is provided by the USGS National Atlas (http://www.nationalatlas.gov/mld/statesp.html).
USA Major Roads 1:2M scale (roads2m)
The USA Major Roads 1:2M scale layer is provided by the USGS National Atlas (http://www.nationalatlas.gov/mld/roadtrl.html). This data set portrays the major roads in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The file was produced by joining the individual State roads layers from the 1:2,000,000-scale Digital Line Graph (DLG) data produced by the USGS. This is a revised version of the March 1999 data set.

GOES-12 IR4 (g12ir4)
The GOES-12 IR4 layer is full-disk longwave infrared imagery from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES-12) built by NASA and operated by NOAA. Imagery is provided by the NASA GSFC GOES Project Science group (http://goes.gsfc.nasa.gov/).
