PixSell Inc., delivered the "US Digital LandSat Data Viewer" to NASA's Earth Science Applications Directorate (ESAD), located at the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi. This product is a four CD-ROM set, containing national (US) LandSat imagery, including Alaska and Hawaii, as well as several vector data layers such as interstate highways, state highways, and state boundaries. The CD-ROM set also includes a detailed LandSat tutorial and an easy-to-follow curriculum on satellite remote sensing, suitable for ages K-12. The LandSat Data Viewer product also includes NASA's popular game "Echo The Bat."
The Data Viewer product was developed under a fixed price task order from NASA under the Remote Sensing Data Services IDIQ contract. GB Tech, Inc., a small disadvantaged business based in Houston, Texas, is the prime contractor on the RSDS contract and supported PixSell's work on this task order.
NASA plans to commence distributing the Digital LandSat Data Viewer to educational institutions in 2002.
