About this Map

The satellite images on this map are from various Geostationary satellites. These satellites are composed of sophisticated instruments for sensing various aspects of the Earth’s atmosphere and weather systems. Infrared satellite imagery on this map uses the temperature of the clouds themselves to display the image. Since the image based on temperature, we are able to detect the strongest parts of storms and to view the clouds at night time.
