Rapid Response vs. Worldview
« on: June 08, 2013, 08:51:17 PM »

Is there any difference in image-quality?

I see most people here use the RR images, and I can understand why if you want large files that caver a lot of area. However, I find the Worldview-interface so much better. If all you need is a cropped image from 100% zoom, is there any point in not using Worldview?

Inquiring noobs want to know :)
Is it progress if a cannibal eats with a fork?

Modis is good to access quickly  (when you now the numbers of the tiles) with as much details than worldview using the 250m view.
But the main point is that it is updated faster !
For the tiles :
http://rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/imagery/subsets/?mosaic=Arctic
For the 250m :
http://rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/imagery/subsets/?subset=Arctic_r02c02.2013159.aqua.250m
Replace the date and the tile as you wish !
