Planet.gpx Image visualising the GPX data. Click for a larger version including comments on some features of the data planet.gpx was a new data download offered alongside planet.osm, this time with all the GPS data OpenStreetMap holds. The latest version is now from 2013 This is the collected GPS point data from the first seven and a half years of OpenStreetMap. The compressed file is 7GBytes in sizeUncompressed, the file is a 55GByte text fileThe data consists of coordinate pairs only, with no track file or meta dataPoints were contributed by thousands of usersPoints were contributed as thousands of distinct track filesThe data includes 2,770,233,904 points Format of simple GPS dump These are comma separated, raw lat / lon coordinates in a simple text format. Extracts Regional extracts are here. These are updated infrequently, but usually a couple of weeks behind the GPX Planet. Visualisation All points are rendered up to zoom 11 on this map. Processing

For example, having URIs for things and concepts in your organization, which everyone may publish statements about on The Web.

USGS Global Visualization Viewer Earth System Science Pathfinder | Science Mission Directorate The Earth System Science Pathfinder (ESSP) Program is a science-driven Program designed to provide an innovative approach to Earth science research by providing periodic, competitively selected opportunities to accommodate new and emergent scientific priorities. ESSP Projects include developmental, high-return Earth Science missions including advanced remote sensing instrument approaches to achieve these priorities, and often involve partnerships with other U.S. agencies and/or with international science and space organizations. These Projects are capable of supporting a variety of scientific objectives related to Earth science, including the atmosphere, oceans, land surface, polar ice regions and solid earth. Projects include development and operation of space missions, space-based remote sensing instruments for missions of opportunity, and airborne science missions, and the conduct of science research utilizing data from these missions.
