LP DAAC ingests, processes, archives, and distributes NASA data products related to land processes collected by several Earth Observing System (EOS) sensors, including ASTER, MODIS, and VIIRS; two Earth Venture Class sensors, including ECOSTRESS, and GEDI; and mission-derivate products created by select principal investigators. The LP DAAC provides data crucial to the investigation, characterization, and monitoring of biological, geological, hydrological, ecological, and related conditions and processes. In doing so, it promotes the interdisciplinary study and understanding of Earth’s integrated systems.
Several tools and services are available for searching, downloading, and ordering data from LP DAAC. Users may obtain all data products distributed by LP DAAC by using NASA’s Earthdata Search. A selection of products from LP DAAC are available through USGS EarthExplorer. Point and area sampling can be completed for a variety of data products from LP DAAC and other geospatial data products from other federal archives with the Application for Extracting and Exploring Analysis Ready Samples (AppEEARS). Users may also acquire data via HTTP by directly accessing LP DAAC’s Data Pool or by using the DAAC2Disk Download Manager.
