“Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are computer applications that incorporate geographical features with tabular data in order to map and analyze real-world problems. ArcGIS is a system introduced by a company called Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc. (ESRI) to meet the needs of a wide range of GIS users.
“On the blog titled ‘GIS and Science’ maintained by the GIS and Science Program Manager for ESRI, a number of ‘how-to’ videos are outlined that detail using AIRS data with ESRI GIS tools. The tools are developed on top of ESRI’s ArcGIS suite of GIS products utilizing ArcObjects.
“These videos demonstrates a component of a series of tools developed by the Redlands Institute at the University of Redlands, CA as part of a collaborative project with JPL to download, visualize, and analyze source AIRS satellite sounder data.”
