The vast majority of content on the Earth Observatory is free and available for anyone to use, commercially or otherwise. Many iPhone users will recognize our Blue Marble image from their welcome screen, and many other people have been using our RSS feeds and other syndication methods to bring EO content to other websites, or to integrate into their Google homepage or Facebook feed.
Recently, we learned about a widget created for WordPress that will show our Image of the Day in your blog’s sidebar. We are always excited to see our content repurposed, and this is a really cool way for people to share compelling images and stories with their family, friends, and community.
Do you know of other places where EO content is being used? Are you a fellow developer interested in how you can use our content in your own web applications? Leave us a note here telling us where you have seen our content, or what you would do with with the resources available. Are you working on a great app, but don’t have exactly what you need? Tell us what you’re looking for! We are always looking for new ways to get our readership involved in making the Earth Observatory even better.
