3D Earth Online Visuals application takes off

05 Oct 2023

A new app has just been launched, enabling you to explore ESA’s satellite missions in 3D and providing a new perspective on how satellite data contribute to our understanding of Earth systems, the climate, and their interactions.

The Earth Online Visuals app displays interactive 3D models of ESA’s Earth Explorers and the Envisat and GOCE Heritage satellites. The models detail the mission payloads and where the instruments are placed on the satellites.
