- General search engines (images only)
sounds) - this is not just science, so be prepared for
- Earth - science image databases.
gallery - searchable image database at the Univ. of British
Columbia. Enter key words on a wide range
of geological subjects and topics, though mainly from British
options help provided.
NIX (NASA image
exchange) - allows keyword searching of several NASA image
databases (e.g. Ames, Goddard and more), either together or
singly. Also allows browsing and other options.
- Earth - Satellite image searching
EarthRISE (SDSC?) - very
large and growing database of earth images from the Shuttle
flights. All are public domain. Forms search and
several options, for example "topography". This is
very highly recommended if you want good earth images on a
wide range of earth science topics. The "forms" option appears to
give best results (personal opinion)
World Wide Web Interface (NOAA) - satellite image search. Data
(lat .long.) can be entered numerically or via interactive map.
Good help provided online.
Satellite Imagery Catalogue System (Canadian Center for Remote
Sensing) - information on images available from a number of
satellites including "quick looks" for LANDSAT, SPOTand NOAA. The
database is searchable by entering information on time, latitude
