Application Description
ACRES MODIS NBAR Online Data Application
This application provides quick-look images and download options of the MOD43 Nadir BRDF-Adjusted Reflectance (NBAR) Products generated by ACRES. These products are a composite, generated for MODIS spectral bands 1-7 at the mean solar zenith angle over a 16 day period. In addition to the NBAR composite products, the BRDF parameters for each band, the ancillary, and band quality information are also provided. Each NBAR composite product is in GeoTIFF format at 500 metres resolution. All of the files are compressed using gzip/tar as "*.tar.gz". For Windows gzip/tar support please try WinZip.
ALOS Registration Request for non-commercial use Application
The Advanced Land Observing Satellite (ALOS), also known as Daichi, is a Japanese satellite launched on 24 January 2006. The satellite provides high quality, low cost Earth observation data for topographical mapping, disaster and environmental monitoring and climate change studies. ALOS also provides an alternative source of data and a level of back-up to the Landsat series of satellites.
Earth Observation Catalogue Login
The Geoscience Australia Earth Observation Catalogue System is designed to allow users to search on-line for satellite imagery available from Geoscience Australia. The Catalogue comprises text and imagery for each scene in the Earth Observation Archive. Catalogue users can query and view ALOS, Landsat, MODIS, ERS, JERS, RADARSAT and ASTER Earth observation satellite acquisitions over the Australian landmass, most of Papua New Guinea, Eastern Indonesia, New Zealand and the Oceania region.
Fast track pre-processed MODIS products Application
This page provides quick-look images and basic metadata for all Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) acquisitions made by Geoscience Australia Earth Observation in the past seven days. Each swath is labelled by orbit number and date, and is divided into scenes or "Granules". Time of day is shown using Co-ordinated Universal Time (UTC) which is similar to Greenwich Mean Time. Australian Eastern Standard time is UTC plus 10 hours. Data for download is in a specialised format suitable for image analysis by professional users. If a simple image file (*.jpg) only is required, click on the magnifying glass, then right-click on the enlarged image and Save Picture As to save to your local drive. First enlargement is approx five kilometre pixels and the second enlargement is approx one kilometre pixels. Quick-look images derived from HDF datasets are cropped at 180E - (The HDF datasets themselves are complete).
NOAA Register
NOAA data is available free of charge from the Geoscience Australia download site for acquisitions over the last seven days. The data will be removed from the download site after this time. Data will normally be available on the download site the evening after an acquisition.
Interactive Maps
Interactive Maps is a discovery and exploration view of Geoscience Australia's geospatial services. The following scientific and decision support themes have curated content comprised of maps and functions. Each map has queries and functions with linked access to OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) web services and metadata. This system replaces MapConnect and AMSIS applications.

Sentinel - Bushfire Mapping Application
Sentinel is a national bushfire monitoring system that provides timely information about hotspots to emergency service managers across Australia. The mapping system allows users to identify fire locations with a potential risk to communities and property.
