How To Use the GCMD
Posted by Tyler Stevens, Last modified by Monica Lyles on 17 May 2018 02:48 PM

The GCMD has made it very easy for the public to locate the data sets they desire. All the metadata are accessible via several search interfaces.

Search Options:

  • Earth Science Keywords: Search results can be modified Science discipline, geographic location, platform/source, or instrument. Or try the map/date combo data search.
  • Full-Text Search: This allows a query on user specified keywords. This can be of use when searching for metadata on specific topics (e.g., El NiƱo or Global Warming).

A tutorial on the new search functionality is available at
