I hope this is in the right forum, if else please move mods.

I had read about this earlier today and couldn't find a thread for it so here it is

WASHINGTON - March 3, 2009 - NASA and Cisco Inc. announced Tuesday a partnership to develop an online collaborative global monitoring platform called the "Planetary Skin" to capture, collect, analyze and report data on environmental conditions around the world.

Under the terms of a Space Act Agreement, NASA and Cisco will work together to develop the Planetary Skin as an online collaborative platform to capture and analyze data from satellite, airborne, sea- and land-based sensors across the globe.
This data will be made available for the general public, governments and businesses to measure, report and verify environmental data in near-real-time to help detect and adapt to global climate change.

Quite interesting I think and I wonder what we the public will see of this in the future.
