The only satellite with hyper-spectral imaging capabilities that I've been able to find is EO-1, which has the Hyperion spectrometer you're referencing. There could potentially be satellites that aren't in the public eye with such capabilities, perhaps military satellites, but I certainly haven't heard of any. Perhaps multi-spectral imaging would work for ...
You seem to mix 2 distinct concepts: mapping API and tile server. Though Google and Bing offer BOTH of these services, you are not obliged to use a packaged solution. Since Google and Bing are proprietary systems displaying proprietary data, i recommend that you switch to Open Street Maps API (ou OSMdroid for android). That will supply the functionalities ...
The US Naval Research Laboratory has developed the "Special Sensor Ultraviolet Spectrographic Imager" (SSUSI). Versions of it have been aboard DMSP satellites since 2003, improving in accuracy. It records in the extreme ultraviolet and far ultraviolet spectral ranges. The most recent numbers I could find (from 2011) said it has 7km resolution and records ...
The Spot Gen 3 is an inexpensive solution that will do what you are asking. It will not notify the user that they need to send a message out, but a cheap wrist watch can solve that problem. At the lowest subscription level a position is reported every 10 minutes, the user initiates a message manually to a pre-configured distribution list. Who ever is ...
ArcGIS doesn't handle HDF files very well, so you might need to use some other methods to extract the data. You could use the MODIS Reprojection Tool, or if you have access to ENVI/IDL, you can use them to read and export the data.
As far as I know, ALL of NASA's scientific data is freely available. You can find the datasets you need by either searching NASA's data portal, or in mission-specific sites and hubs.
After having reviewed the metadata from every Landsat 8 scene acquired from launch to mid March 2016, I've found that the lowest sun elevation angle consistently present in the archive is around 5.5, giving you a 84.5° SZA. Below is a histogram of the sun elevation angles of the reviewed Landsat 8 scenes.
