Polar Geospatial Center Releases New Image Applications

posted on December 17, 2013

New applications created by the University of Minnesota’s Polar Geospatial Center (PGC) were recently highlighted by the The Antarctic Sun, a publication from the United States Antarctic Program. The article contains quotes from Professor Paul Morin, the Center director and an MSI PI.

The PGC has created web-based mapping applications for viewing high-resolution satellite images of the Arctic and Antarctic. The Center’s newest application, Imagery Viewers, allows users to make their own maps for locations in Antarctica, Greenland, and Alaska. More details about the application and the PGC’s work can be read in an online article.

Professor Morin and the PGC use MSI facilities to process, store, and deliver their high-resolution images, remotely sensed data, and maps.
