Description

GLOBE Observer invites you to make observations of the Earth around you. Observations you collect and submit with this app are designed to help scientists better understand satellite data collected by NASA from space.

The current version includes four capabilities. GLOBE Clouds allows observers to make regular observations of the Earth’s cloud cover and compare them to NASA satellite observations. With GLOBE Mosquito Habitat Mapper, users locate mosquito habitats, observe and identify mosquito larvae, and reduce the potential threat of mosquito borne disease. GLOBE Land Cover is designed to allow users to document what is on the land (trees, grass, buildings, etc.). GLOBE Trees asks users to estimate a tree’s height by taking pictures of trees with their device and answering a few questions. Additional capabilities may be added.

By using the GLOBE Observer app, you are joining the GLOBE community and contributing important scientific data to NASA and GLOBE, your local community, and students and scientists worldwide. The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program is an international science and education program that provides students and the public worldwide with the opportunity to participate in data collection and the scientific process, and contribute meaningfully to our understanding of the Earth system and global environment.

What’s New

Not compatible with iPhone X?

Hi Team,
Starting to wonder if this app needs an update. . .
I have downloaded your app onto my iPhone X. Running the latest Apple software update as of 29 March 2019. The app is forever ‘installing updates’ with the loading gear spinning around. The app is not yet at a point where I can use it.
I will edit this comment if the app finally installs it’s updates. We are 15 minutes and counting so far with this ‘installing updates’ situation. . .

“Installing Updates” - resolved :)

Users, please be patient, this works - you may try to close the app and then open it again, it will install updates and then be ready :)

Impatient being ,

Why

It takes so long!
