The NASA IceBridge Project is comprised of airborne data over the most dynamic areas of the Arctic, Greenland, Alaska and Antarctica. The data gathered by this project are unique in that they are spatially referenced by flight lines, flights are flown during approximately 3-month campaigns, and data are collected by a wide variety of instrumentation.
The NASA IceBridge Data Portal provides a single location from which one can get an overview of all the IceBridge data sets. It allows for map-based visualization of the flight paths via polar views of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Using a variety of filters and image overlays, one can visualize, search and download IceBridge data campaigns. NSIDC recently added some new capabilities to the IceBridge Data Portal. These new features include:
– A simpler display which allows users to hide and move informational windows
– The ability to filter results by selecting one or more instruments
– A tar-on-the-fly option for downloading complete directories of data at once
– New map layers for enhanced visualization including:
- Mosaic of Greenland (MOG)
- Shaded Relief DEM
- MEaSUREs Velocity Map
- Mosaic of Antarctica (MOA)
- Antarctic Bedrock DEM
- Radarsat Antarctic Mapping Project (RAMP)
