The 3D real-time visualization tool lets users track NASA satellites as well as the vital Earth science data they provide.

NASA's real-time 3D visualization tool Eyes on the Earth got a recent upgrade to include more datasets, putting the world at your fingertips.

Using the tool, you can track the planet's vital signs - everything from carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide to sea level and soil moisture levels - as well as follow the fleet of Earth satellites providing those measurements.

Eyes on the Earth offers an engaging, interactive resource to learn more about environmental phenomena and their impacts.

Eyes on the Earth will show a visualization of data from NASA's Orbiting Carbon Observatory 2 satellite, which measures the gas from the ground to the top of the atmosphere.

The newest version of Eyes on the Earth also provides snapshots of significant events in the natural world.

"With the latest advancements in technology, we are able to harness these innovations to combine larger amounts of data and imagery for users to visualize how our planet is constantly changing," said Jon Nelson, group supervisor of the Visualization Technology Applications and Development at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California, which developed Eyes.

While you're at it, you can check out the recently launched Landsat 9 as well as two powerful forthcoming missions: NISAR and SWOT. The graphics are as rich as the data, making for fascinating deep dives as you learn about the science, get to know the planet better, and learn about some of the many NASA missions that track the globe's health.
