March 13, 2019The ARSET program offers satellite remote sensing training that builds the skills to integrate NASA Earth Science data into an agency’s decision-making activities. Trainings are offered in air quality, climate, disaster, health, land, water resources, and wildfire management. Through online and in person training, ARSET has reached over 19,000 participants from 160 countries and more than 5,200 organizations worldwide. Through ARSET trainings, you can learn how to: 1) use NASA data for environmental management, 2) search and access NASA resources relevant to your needs, and 3) visualize, interpret, and apply remote sensing data and imagery.

March 13, 2019As NASA DEVELOP entered its 21st year of operation, it welcomed 64 spring term participants and began the spring term. During the spring term, DEVELOPers will be working alongside 39 partner organizations, all of whom offer unique expertise and invaluable insight into our projects. Through 16 different projects, DEVELOP is exploring the application of NASA Earth observations across the country and around the world.
March 13, 2019SERVIR is improving access to the geospatial services it provides to inform decision making and improve resilience in critical areas like food security, water management, disaster resilience, and sustainable land and ecosystem management. The SERVIR Service Catalogue describes each service, providing easy access to associated products, tools, data, training materials, and news — connecting people to a wealth of information. Each service in the Service Catalogue has been developed through consultation and collaboration with partners around the world to bring NASA’s satellite imagery, geospatial data, and Earth science research into decision-making processes to achieve meaningful and lasting development impact. The co-developers of each service, as well as the broader users and stakeholders, can be found in each service entry.
March 13, 2019The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announced on March 8 a five-year project that will use satellite imagery to address environment and development challenges across the Amazon Basin. Using state-of-the-art geospatial technologies, SERVIR-Amazonia will empower actors across the region to track environmental changes in almost real-time, evaluate climatic threats, and rapidly respond to natural disasters. By building the capacity of people and institutions to integrate science and technology into decision-making, USAID and NASA will support sustainability and self-reliance throughout the region.
