NASA Global Imagery Browse Services (GIBS)

This software was originally developed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory as Tiled WMS (https://github.com/nasajpl/tiledwms). OnEarth is now the latest actively developed version.


OnEarth is a software package consisting of image formatting and serving modules which facilitate the deployment of a web service capable of efficiently serving standards-based requests for georeferenced raster imagery at multiple spatial resolutions including, but not limited to, full spatial resolution. The software was originally developed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) to serve global daily composites of MODIS imagery. Since then, it has been deployed and repurposed in other installations, including at the Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center (PO.DAAC) in support of the State of the Oceans (SOTO) visualization tool, the Lunar Mapping and Modeling Project (LMMP), and Worldview.

The source code contains the mod_onearth Apache module (formerly Tiled WMS/KML server), a Meta Raster Format (MRF) imagery generator, a legend generator, and server configuration tools.

OnEarth-Boxes is a tool that can build a virtual machine with demo imagery and pre-configured endpoints for demos, development, and getting started with MRF and OnEarth. Multiple VM image formats are supported. For more information visit https://github.com/nasa-gibs/onearth-boxes.
