Star Gazers is a mobile app built for astronomy enthusiasts. It consolidates and characterises the best locations for stargazing.
eBird Mobile makes it easy to record the birds you see in the field, and seamlessly link these observations with eBird--a global online database of bird records used by hundreds of thousands of birders around the world. This free resource makes it easy to keep track of what you see, while making your data openly available for scientific research, education, and conservation. eBird Mobile is the only app that passes information directly from the Android device to your eBird account on the web.
GLOBE Observer invites you to make environmental observations that complement NASA satellite observations to help scientists studying Earth and the global environment.
Whether you're a teacher, student, or just fascinated by science, the NSF Science Zone app will ignite your imagination. Featuring hundreds of exciting videos and high-resolution photos from a dozen areas of science, you can spend hours absorbed in discoveries that take you from the depths of space, to the wonders of the unimaginably small, to the far corners of our own planet.
Earth Now is an application that visualizes recent global climate data from Earth Science satellites. The visualized data include surface air temperature, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, ozone, and water vapor, as well as gravity and sea-level variations. Data sets are described visually using "false color" maps. Color-coded legends indicate relative strength or weakness of an environmental condition. The user may rotate and/or zoom in on the resulting 3-D model of Earth.
The WWF Free Rivers augmented reality app puts an entire landscape in your hands. Immerse yourself in its incredible virtual world, where you’ll meet the people and wildlife that live here.
