‘NASA and Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) have publically released nearly 3 million images from their database of thermal emission images detailing 99 percent of the planet’s surface.

The imaging by ASTER has the ability to capture land surface temperature and reflectance. Along with this, it merges two mildly offset two-dimensional images to create the impression of three dimensions. With this three-pronged attack, it can measure all manner of geological and environmental conditions.’
