For more information about the GOES series and the products developed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, see: The WMS mapservice is maintained on a test server at the Space Science & Engineering Center (SSEC) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The imagery in this mapservice is updated every 30 minutes during daylight hours in Wisconsin and includes visible as well as infrared channels.
