NOTICE: The NEO Program Office website is being retired. Please use the new CNEOS site (update your bookmarks and links). The legacy NEO site will be available until late March 2017, after which you will be automatically redirected to the new CNEOS site.

Introducing the New CNEOS Website

Paul Chodas and Alan Chamberlin
February 13, 2017

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) has created the CNEOS website at http://cneos.jpl.nasa.gov to replace the legacy Near-Earth Object Program website at http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov. The CNEOS website provides the same near-Earth object (NEO) data as on the legacy site, in a modern, interactive framework, and it incorporates new content as well. High-quality NEO orbital elements, summaries of close approaches, the Sentry impact risk table, NEO discovery statistics, and data on asteroids that might be accessible for exploration are all presented in interactive tables and plots.

An important new feature of the CNEOS site is the Scout page, which gives continually updated assessments of the range of possible trajectories of newly detected but unconfirmed objects. Other new features include a dynamically updated interactive global map on the fireballs page that displays the locations of the tabulated events, an asteroid size estimator page, and a user-friendly home page with an interactive menu bar, spotlight topic icons, a list of quick links, and metrics of interest shown in the sidebar.

CNEOS also now provides a convenient mechanism for user programs to download NEO data directly from JPL's small-body database using a set of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). The new APIs are documented online at http://ssd-api.jpl.nasa.gov

CNEOS will maintain the legacy NEO Program website on http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov until it is retired in late March 2017.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, hosts the Center for Near-Earth Object Studies for NASA's Near-Earth Object Observations Program within the agency's Science Mission Directorate as a key element of NASA's Planetary Defense Coordination Office.
