MISR data are also available through the ASDC Data Pool (an on-line, short-term data cache that provides a Web interface and FTP access. Specially subsetted and/or reformatted MISR data products supporting field campaigns are also available. Passive FTP mode is required to access the Data Pool from the command line as "ftp -p l5ftl01.larc.nasa.gov", where the system translates to "lower case L five ft lower case L zero one .larc.nasa.gov". A UNIX C shell script method may be used to assist in downloading files from the Data Pool. A readme link can be found here Readme. A sample script is available here. Data files are stored in directories based on data product and acquisition date. Corresponding metadata files are available in Extensible Markup Language (XML) format.
Another method to obtain MISR data is through the Earthdata Search Tool. Tutorials for this ordering tool are available here.
