Slip Slidin’ Away

Post from Paul Przyborski, EO programmer…

For the past few weeks, we have quietly implemented a new way of viewing images on Earth Observatory. Some of you may have noticed that there is now a “view image comparison” button on some of our Natural Hazards images, as well as on this Image of the Day. You can also click on the image above to jump to a slider view.

This particular interface is based largely on the “Before/After” plugin available at  We owe a big thank you to the web developer responsible for this plugin, Jason A., who was generous enough to let us to use his code and bring you a new way to compare remote sensing imagery .

Please take a moment to try the new feature and let us know what you think.  If you are a developer or website owner looking for new ways to enhance user experiences, you may want to head over to Jason’s site.
