Welcome to GloVis

Since 2001, the USGS Global Visualization Viewer (GloVis) has been available to users for accessing remote sensing data. In 2017, it was redesigned to address changing internet technologies. With easy-to- use navigation tools, users can instantly view and download scenes.

This viewer allows you to:

  • Use existing EROS Registration System (ERS) credentials to sign in
  • Narrow down results by limiting your parameters on the Interface Control
  • View multiple scenes at once and step through time using the controls in the lower right-hand corner
  • View metadata and download the full-band source imagery
  • Adjust settings to customize the user experience

New Features
  • Jump directly to a known scene ID within a data set
  • Timeline view of results for temporal and co-disovery visualization
  • Keyboard shortcuts for more efficient scene and timeline navigation
  • Full screen mode for maximum map size
