Considering that one of today's biggest global concerns is related to the climate change and its imminent undesired effects, we present the approach of creating and offering a public Web service to provide real-time access to environmental data and information. One of service's direct usages is natural disasters detection, but it could be further used for developing complex statistics and prediction generators, or for other environment related applications. The data is extracted from a satellite imagery repository implemented on a Grid infrastructure. For testing the capabilities of the service for different type of users, a visualization and interaction Web application has been developed. The service is integrated in the MedioGRID system.
