NOAA's Geoplatform provides geospatial data, maps, and analytics in support of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's mission. The site is a GIS application using Esri's ArcGIS Online. Prepared products including Maps, Layers, Scenes, and Apps and StoryMaps are available to the public for browsing. Only NOAA staff have the ability to create accounts and share resources on the site.
Where do these data come from?
Map-based products on the site are based on data from all parts of NOAA; they also incorporate maps made available by Esri, for instance through the Living Atlas of the World. Maps or services showing current or historical weather come from the National Weather Service. Satellite-based images are from NOAA's National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service. Data collected from every part of NOAA has been used to generate maps and other visualization products, many of which are available through NOAA's GeoPlatform.
