Abstract

The GOES-16, GOES-17, and Himawari-8 satellites bring with them rich datasets that can help protect life and property from extreme weather events, but these data are too immense for conventional ways of viewing satellite imagery over the web. New visualization tools are needed to facilitate their exploration, and to that end, the Satellite Loop Interactive Data Explorer in Real-Time (SLIDER) web application was recently developed and an experimental version was launched for public use. This new web application allows users to easily explore many terabytes of satellite imagery at full resolution, including a multiweek archive and cases of interest. Diverse user groups, from National Weather Service forecast offices to the general public, use SLIDER’s basic and advanced features to help get the most out of these new datasets.
