The University of Wisconsin-Madison SSEC Geo Browser which provides all of the ABI bands, Mesoscale Domain Sector 1 (Meso1), Meso2, and Continental U.S. (CONUS) and Full Disk.

RealEarthTM is a data discovery and visualization platform developed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison SSEC/CIMSS to support public outreach and the collaboration efforts of in-house scientists.

University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences provides GOES-16 Full Disk, CONUS, and sectors (images and loops/animations).

University of Wisconsin-Madison SSEC/CIMSS maintains a list of GOES-16 Websites.


The NOAA STAR Regional and Mesoscale Meteorology Branch (RAMMB) conducts research on the use of satellite data to improve analysis, forecasts, and warnings for regional and mesoscale meteorological events. RAMMB is co-located with the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA) at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO. The RAMMB Slider provides GOES-16 geocolor images for all bands and for sectors plus GLM products.

The Short-term Prediction Research and Transition Center (SPoRT) is a NASA project to transition unique observations and research capabilities to the operational weather community to improve short-term forecasts on a regional scale. The SPORT website displays the following GOES-R Series products: RGBs, Full Disk, CONUS, and Mesoscale sectors in addition to SPoRT’s GLM Quicklook product.

The Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) provides satellite imagery, including GOES-16, on the ECCC satellite page.

Meteo-Chile provides 16 bands and Red Green Blue (RGB) images over Chile and 1-page ABI Band fact sheets. Brazil's CPTEC provides all of the GOES-16 ABI bands in loops/animation over South America.

The National Earth Observation Laboratory (LANOT) at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in Mexico city, Mexico, has receive stations for GOES-16, GNC-A, Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-NPP), NOAA-20, MetOp, and Fengyun-3.

Many universities receive data from Unidata/UCAR. Unidata/UCAR has GRB and NOAAPort receive stations and provides access to GOES-16 data in a variety of ways, including:

  • The Man computer Interactive Data Access System (McIDAS) Abstract Data Distribution Environment (ADDE) provides programmatic access for NOAAPort and GRB delivered content.

  • The Thematic Real-time Environmental Distributed Data Services (THREDDS) Data Server provides a variety of applications programmatic access for NOAAPort and GRB delivered content.

  • Web data server for NOAAPort and GRB delivered content from all GOES-R Series instruments.

  • Internet Data Distribution (IDD) real-time data "push" technology for NOAAPort and GRB delivered content.

NOAA’s Big Data Demonstration Project, through its Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADA) with five infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) providers, demonstrated the feasibility of broadening access to NOAA’s data resources through the Cloud.

The Community Satellite Processing Package (CSPP) software is now available.
