The Earth Observing Dashboard is a free interactive tool that allows the user to look at the short- and long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on air quality, greenhouse gases, water quality, light levels, population, and production of goods such as cars…all from satellite images. The user can zoom in, collect data, and see graphs representing the data.  An introductory video provides an overview of the kinds of global impacts that can be seen from space. Also downloadable graphs and descriptions of the kinds of data and how it can be used are available at
