Harnessing the Power of Satellite Data

The CEOS Visualization Environment (COVE) is a browser-based suite of tools for searching, analyzing and visualizing actual and potential satellite sensor coverage.

Welcome to the COVE Portal

The CEOS Visualization Environment (COVE) is a suite of tools for analyzing satellite sensor coverage for more than 100 Earth-observing satellites. The suite includes:

  • COVE - a Cesium-based visualization tool
  • Rapid Acquisition Tool - A tool for acquisition identification
  • Coverage Analyzer - A tool for long-term coverage analysis
  • Mission and Instrument Browser - A database of Earth-observing satellites

COVE Paper

 A paper on COVE was published in IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing.  It can be downloaded from IEEE Xplore or directly from COVE.

The COVE suite was developed by the NASA CEOS System Engineering Office (SEO) for CEOS.  All tools in the suite are publicly available and free to use.
