NASA visualizers take data – numbers, codes – and turn them into animations people can see and quickly understand. You can become a data visualizer by creating your own flipbook animations using maps of science variables that NASA scientists commonly study to better understand the Earth System.
Scientists are interested in learning how the vegetation (collection of plants) of an area can be used to study Earth's climate.
