Understanding Earth: Biodiversity and Ecological Conservation
PDF icon NASA_Understanding Earth_Biodiversity & Ecological Conservation_3rdEdition_508Vers.pdf

Biological diversity, or biodiversity, refers to the variety of all life on Earth—on all levels, from genes to species, ecosystems, and biomes. Over the last several decades, however, research has shown that global biodiversity has been on the decline. For decades, satellite and airborne remote sensing instruments have been observing environmental changes that impact biodiversity. This brochure describes how satellite observations—often combined with other measurements taken on the ground or from aircraft—provide information relevant to the distribution of ecosystems and their resident species and how scientists use this information to understand patterns of biodiversity, how biodiversity is changing, the drivers of the changes, and to predict the impacts of environmental changes on biodiversity in the future.

How To: Hyperwall Playlist
PDF icon How to Assemble a Playlist for a Hyperwall Presentation_508[1].pdf

NASA’s Hyperwall is a video wall capable of displaying multiple high-definition data visualizations and/or images simultaneously across an arrangement of screens. Functioning as a key component at many NASA exhibits, the hyperwall is used to help explain phenomena, ideas, or examples of world change. These six steps will help you assemble a Hyperwall playlist, i.e., a list of media files, in chronological order, that you’d like to display on the Hyperwall.
