Many of us take it for granted that we are living on one beautiful blue planet. Just like a living body, Earth does have its own vital signs. Scientists do pay attention to the rise of temperature and the level of carbon dioxide, water, and ozone in our atmosphere. Thanks to Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Earth-Now, you can get a better understanding for the recent data from Earth Science satellites on your iPhone.
Earth-Now visualizes its data sets using color maps. Color-coded legends are provided so you can make better sense of what you are looking out. You have the option to choose from various data maps (including Ozone, Sea Level, Water Vapor, Gravity Field, …). You get a 3D model to rotate and interact with.
Earth-Now looks pretty decent and could prove useful for the students of climate science. We did have trouble opening this on our iPod Touch. It worked fine on our iPhone though. The app is offered for free at the time of this writing.
