Posted by Minnie Wong, Last modified by Minnie Wong on 04 February 2016 12:14 PM

Thank you for your interest in NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS).

I would like to recommend a few tools to assist you with locating earth science data:

  1. The Earthdata Search client ( allows you to search and discover earth science data filtered by temporal and geographic attributes.
  2. The Worldview imaging client ( allows you to browse and download full-resolution, global, near real-time satellite imagery from 100+ data products.
  3. The LPDAAC ( also has links to a number of tools that may help you find the data you are interested in. 

Please acknowledge NASA as the data source for any usage you may have planned. All NASA Earth Observation data are available free of charge.

Let us know if you have any other questions.
