Centers of the NASA Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) that process, archive, document, and distribute data from NASA′s past and current Earth-observing satellites and field measurement programs. Each center serves one or more specific Earth science disciplines and provides data products and information, services, and tools unique to its particular science.
Provides scientists and others access to Earth science satellite data (e.g., land, ocean, and atmosphere data products) from the NASA Earth-Sun Systems Division, and provides tools to facilitate the processing, archiving, and distribution of Earth science data.
Presents new satellite imagery and scientific information about the Earth, with a particular focus on climate and environmental change. This section focuses on the Global Map directory, a global view of what's happening on the planet, over time.
Terra Populus provides global-scale data on human population characteristics, land use, land cover, climate and other environmental characteristics. TerraPop makes these data interoperable across time and space, disseminates them to the public and to multiple research communities, and preserves these precious resources for future generations.
The Research Data Alliance (RDA) builds the social and technical bridges that enable open sharing of data. The RDA vision is researchers and innovators openly sharing data across technologies, disciplines, and countries to address the grand challenges of society.
The ESIP Federation is a diverse network of scientists, data stewards, and technology developers that improves access to Earth science data and information by a wide community of users, including scientists, academics, and the general public.
A coordinated series of polar-orbiting and low-inclination satellites for long-term global observations of the land surface, biosphere, solid Earth, atmosphere, and oceans. EOS is a major component of the Earth Science Division of NASA′s Science Mission Directorate, which aims to enable an improved understanding of the Earth as an integrated system by both program scientists and the general public.
The mission of the World Data System (WDS) is to enhance the capabilities, impact and sustainability of its member data repositories and data services by: creating trusted communities of scientific data repositories; strengthening the scientific enterprise throughout the entire lifecycle of data and all related components creating first-class data that feeds first-class research output; and advocating for accessible data and transparent and reproducible science.
