Download ‘worldsnap’ in bulk

by lailai0824 » Thu Feb 29, 2024 1:27 am America/New_York

Hello,I want to download the satellite image of the interested region over a long period of time in Worldview Snapshots. For example, download the jpg images of 'Aqua MODIS 7-2-1,Corrected Reflanctance' of Lake Taihu from May 6, 2003, to May 6, 2023. How can I batch-download the image?

Hello!
We currently don't have a user interface that allows users to download jpg images for 20 years for a specific area, though this is an interesting request that we'll look into and see if we can develop something in the future.

What you can do is access the Global Imagery Browse Services (GIBS) API to retrieve that imagery by writing your own script. You can find the documentation here: https://nasa-gibs.github.io/gibs-api-docs/ and more specific documentation on scripts: https://nasa-gibs.github.io/gibs-api-docs/map-library-usage/. Worldview Snapshots (wvs.earthdata.nasa.gov) and Worldview (worldview.earthdata.nasa.gov) are built on the Global Imagery Browse Services.
