NASA app makes it easy to measure trees


Today’s Video of the Day from NASA introduces the new GLOBE Observer application, which provides a simple method for collecting tree height measurements.

The app is extremely easy to use, and you can share your results with other citizen scientists.

The information can also be compared to data acquired by NASA projects, such as the ICESat-2 mission. The app, called Spacecraft AR, uses the latest augmented reality (AR) technology to put virtual 3-D models of NASA’s robotic space explorers into any environment with a flat surface. Get the app for Android.
