The ISS SERVIR Environmental Research and Visualization System or ISERV – a camera aboard the International Space Station – captures an image of her hometown. ISERV was designed and built at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.
ISERV provides useful images for disaster monitoring and assessment and environmental decision making. A system like ISERV could aid in delivering imagery and data to help officials in developing nations monitor impacts of disasters such as floods, landslides and forest fires. Its images also could help decision makers address other environmental issues.
