Raytheon’s VIIRS View App Provides World Weather to Mobile Users

May 21, 2014  - By


Available for iPhone, iPad and Android, VIIRS View provides mobile device users a look into the type of data meteorologists and climatologists use every day to track the weather and monitor Earth’s environment.

Based on data generated by the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite aboard Suomi NPP, VIIRS View combines visible light imagery, low-light nighttime imagery and ocean chlorophyll concentration onto a full Earth globe, rotatable and zoomable on any location on the planet.

A desktop version of the VIIRS View app, launched in February, has been downloaded more than 90,000 times.

An original large format VIIRS View interactive tabletop display is being shown at Raytheon Booth #203 at the the 30th Space Symposium, being held this week in Colorado Springs, Colorado. GPS World Defense Editor Don Jewell is providing coverage from the symposium.

The app can be downloaded by searching VIIRS View at the Google Play and Android stores, or by clicking here:
