We recently put together a prototype time enabled Web Mapping Service (WMS) with data from MODIS and VIIRS from 2015 to mid July 2016, and as an experiment, generated a short time lapse from it. The data in this video is a false color presentation using VIIRS “I” bands 3,2, and 1, a band combination we call “Landcover”. The video spans January 2015 to July 2016, and has some interesting natural processes in it - check out the ice movement, and the spring snow melt process. The affect the seasons have on the sensor’s coverage is also visible as the visible bands of VIIRS are only active over areas of the earth illuminated by the sun.
