Data from NASA's Heat Capacity Mapping Mission (HCMM), an Explorer applications satellite used to acquire thermal imagery of the earth's surface, are now available to the public. The data consist of black-and-white imagery (prints and transparencies with a scale of 1:4,000,000) and computer compatible tapes of the United States, southern Canada, western Europe, and eastern Australia.

This information, a user's guide, and data catalogs are available to U.S. concerns by writing National Space Science Data Center, Code 601, NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland 20771.
