ACT-REACT in action Earth/Environmental Decision Support This screen capture shows ACT-REACT in action during an Earth/environmental decision support session. The user is able to accesses data from multiple disparate sources and ACT-REACT fuses the data into a multi-layered map projection -- enabling visual analytics and direct interrogation of the underlying data values. During this session, ACT-REACT accessed satellite-based sensor data along with model, in-situ and higher level data products from multiple sources such as: local hard disk, FTP, OGC/WCS&WMS, OPenDAP, and WIPE  servers. <Learn More>


ACT-REACT in Action This image (click image) shows a QuickMap mosaic created by a work-flow in ACT-REACT, which the user can modify in a simple manner.  The work-flow used accesses data from multiple servers at NOAA+NAVY/NRL+ACT, and creates value added layers, including map-reprojection.  The mosaic  contains derived chlorophyll temporal mean and anomaly layers, overlayed on MODIS cloud free data.  It also shows water sample results around the coast of Florida.  This is part of a joint ACT, NAVY (NRL), NASA and NOAA environmental analysis initiative, where ACT provides the geospatial data management and analytic architecture to support this environmental assessment project.


ACT-REACT in action Planetary Mission Support ACT-REACT is being leveraged in several NASA planetary missions. Scientists and mission teams use the system for: (1) collaborative planning/targeting -- to view and interrogate historical lunar/planetary data to identify, geolocate, describe, and share potential sensor targets; (2) work with new sensor data products -- visualize new data and mosaics, interrogate data values (e.g. mineralogy maps, spectra ratios, altimetry, etc.); and (3) monitor mission progress -- view mission progress through sensor coverage maps and visualize coverage vs. targets, etc. <Learn More>


ACT-REACT in Action This image replays an ACT-REACT user zooming in on MARS at high latitude to a location with a MRO hyper-spectral CRISM observation. In the process ACT-REACT fuses multiple data sets to guide the users' navigation and interpretation process.

The CRISM team is using ACT's PIPE and ACT-REACT software to compile a global map of Mars at approximately 200 meters (660 feet) per pixel. The map is acquired as thousands of individual strips, each about 10 kilometers (6 miles) wide. Over the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's two-year primary science phase, these mapping strips will cover nearly the entire planet, in a manner similar to covering a beach ball with many thousands of pieces of string <Image> (note: large, animated gif image).   ACT-REACT is also used by MRO-CRISM to create web accessible maps of MARS and CRISM spectra via ACT-REACT-QuickMap  ( see_overview ).

REACT-QuickMap with PIPE/WIPE Servers



Interactive access to MERCURY's maps from NASA's MESSENGER Mission

ACT has customized ACT-REACT-QuickMap to monitor mission progress of  NASA's  MESSENGER Satellite in Mercury.  This version of REACT-QuickMap  provides rapid access to footprints of instrument observations,  access to global mosaics,  search of observations within an area of interest, and simple download interface to NASA's  Planetary Data System.

Access to MESSENGER's REACT-QuickMap ,  more info at JHU/APL

Interactive access to Lunar maps from NASA's LRO/LROC Mission
In support to NASA's  Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) operations team,  at Arizona State University (ASU),  ACT has customized ACT-REACT-QuickMap to  let the public :

  • Perform Target Observations Requests , i.e the public requesting the satellite high resolution camera to capture images over specific locations on the Moon surface.     
  • Navigate multiple Lunar global and regional map products using 
    LROC REACT-QuickMap.   The  interface allows to navigate over multiple  map projections and up to very high resolutions, i.e.   0.5 meters/pixel. 

REACT-QuickMap  leverages direclty in ACT's PIPE and ACT-REACT.

This interactive quick-map product was created using ACT-REACT and allows  simple web-browser access to map data.   It depicts the use of surface currents model products from NRL/SSC and Chlorophyll Anomaly products from NOAA/NESDIS.  Also shown is the  value added product  of predicted surface drifts over a period of 72 hours.  The start time is 12/09/2009.    This is part of a case study where an analyst create this product to assist a search/rescue operations team.  (click image to access)


ACT WIPE in Action - Huron

This animated gif is automatically generated by an ACT WIPE server every 30 minutes. The server accesses recent data from NOAA/GOES satellite and fuses it with terrain elevation and bathymetry data (ocean depth) and automatically generates a new animated .gif file. WIPE server can access, fuse and create new products on a scheduled basis, or access data, apply algorithms and serve data/images "on the fly" for an area and temporal period requested.


What Customer Say
ACT software improved our ability to study and visualize our data. We were able to easily incorporate numerous disparate data sources into our analysis and the tool made it easy to share research and leverage other research products.
