IMS Snow and Ice Products

The IMS is an operational software package used to demarcate the presence of snow and ice across the entire northern hemisphere. This software enables qualified analysts to access multiple sets of remotely sensed data in order create and distribute 1 km resolution maps of snow and ice. The data is used for operational weather model initializations as well as other NOAA programs, and academic studies. Please visit our IMS information page or IMS Product Catalog to learn more.
