The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) Data Collection Platforms (DCPs) are a set of hydrologic and meteorologic data collection points. The DCPs are a collection of networks owned and operated by a host of entities.  The IEM receives this dataset from our Unidata feed, which contains the products produced by the Office of Dissemination of the National Weather Service.
The NWS has a fantastic website if you are curious about this dataset.
The IEM attempts to process all available data in this feed. The applications below are divided up by states, so switch the state shown to find data outside of Iowa.
