The year 2015 witnessed a vast expansion of NASA’s Global Imagery Browse Services (GIBS) in a number of dimensions. Near real time imagery was added from a slew of additional sensors including GPM, SMAP, AMSR2, VIIRS, CERES, MOPITT, SSMI, and Aquarius, many of these representing measurements that had not been available in GIBS previously. The SMAP layers are also pioneering a new capability for GIBS to display individual granules. Higher resolution imagery, up to 30m/pixel, is now available in GIBS for some sensors, including ASTER GDEM and L1T and Web-Enabled Landsat Data (WELD). The imagery record is being extended into the past with the entire record of data from MODIS and AMSR-E reprocessing campaigns.
