The Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation (JCSDA)
is committed to providing our employees, customers and visitors with
the most current and timely information possible. Section 508 of the
Rehabilitation Act as amended, 29 U.S.C. Section 794d, requires that
Federal agencies' electronic and information technology is accessible
to people with disabilities. Web pages hosted by JCSDA have been tested
in accordance with the provisions of this Act. If you have difficulty
accessing any portion of this site or would like additional information
on our 508 initiative, please e-mail the webmaster. We welcome any ideas
or comments that help us improve the accessibility and usability of the
JCSDA web site.
JCSDA's Section 508 standards are:
All JCSDA pages follow the Access Board's Section 508 web
accessibility provisions. The Access Board is an independent
Federal agency devoted to making information accessible for
people with disabilities.
JCSDA pages also follow as much as possible the Web Accessibility Initiative
(WAI) guidelines, and the site currently meets Level A conformance of
W3C-WAI Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0. The
Accessibility Initiative (WAI) is a World-Wide Web
initiative to make the Web accessible to people with disabilities,
and the WAI has been appointed to the Advisory Committee for the
revision of U.S. Section 255 guidelines and Section 508 standards,
which include Web accessibility.
JCSDA presents information in many formats, in particular many maps,
photographs, animations and other visualizations of satellite data.
For pages where accessibility is an issue, please request the
information contained on the specific page directly from
