Welcome to the Earthdata User Forum! Here, subject matter experts from several NASA Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAAC) can discuss general questions, research needs and data applications. Users can query how to access, view and interpret the data.
NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) acquires, processes, and distributes thousands of Earth science data products and supports many associated services which are used in research and daily decision-making. Data are collected by a variety of sensors, utilize differing spatial and temporal resolutions, and encompass the entirety of the Earth system: atmosphere, lithosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, and biosphere.
To enable effective and efficient data access and use, EOSDIS has developed a suite of robust and reliable tools and services for users to discover, transform, visualize, and reformat the data.
Data Tools—tools that provide specific search functionality, subsetting and filtering, data handling, reprojection and mapping, and visualization and analysis
Data Recipes—tutorials and how-tos for accessing and transforming data, as well as step-by-step guides for accessing and downloading data via multiple programming languages
Data Pathfinders—guided pathways to help users find and use commonly-used datasets and tools
Earthdata Webinars—recorded webinars and short videos about accessing and using specific datasets and tools
