NASA’s LANCE-MODIS API gives users access to a library of geodata. LANCE (Land, Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS) is a term used to denote the satellite imaging of geographical and atmospheric phenomenon (natural and man-made). Combined with MODIS (Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) the LANCE-MODIS API offers data and imagery from variety of satellites and instruments allowing for Near Real-Time (NRT) observation and data acquisition. Data is typically available within 3 hours of satellite observation.
