NASA's evolving Global Imagery Browse Services (GIBS) project provides raster imagery for a wide range of geophysical parameters across EOSDIS missions. This imagery is available through a set of web services and associated standard interfaces which facilitate efficient transmission of raster layers to mapping clients which consume geospatial imagery for a wide spectrum of applications. The varied types of Earth science data within the ever-growing holdings of EOSDIS require GIBS to expand and evolve beyond its current operational focus of serving daily global and polar raster composites. This ESIP session focuses on presenting current and planned GIBS development activities for the purpose of soliciting comments, questions, and user scenarios. Topics include visualization support for: Sub-Daily Data (per science product file/granule) - Visualization of individual data files, which typically have a temporal coverage that is less than one day. Common use cases include visualizing single swaths/granules/scenes. Vector-Based Data - Visualization of vector-based data in non-raster formats. Common use cases include client-side styling, efficient tiling scheme's, etc. Considered vector products include orbit/ship tracks, dense data products, and gridded (varying by zoom level) products. Curtains/Vertical Profiles - Visualization of non lat/lon data products that are best visualized along a "z axis", often associated with elevation or pressure level. Interactive Analysis (R&D work) - Data visualization techniques facilitating direct interaction with the source science data behind the GIBS imagery, locally within a browser or science tool.
