Abstract: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)’s Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC) provides free and open access to remotely sensed data that can be used in many GIS applications to map and model the Earth’s surface and to monitor land changes. The LP DAAC offers efficient ways to access and download data with a wide range of temporal and spatial resolutions. This presentation is a guide to understanding the types of data the LP DAAC distributes and the availability of Data Access tools. Live demonstrations from the LP DAAC will be given on how to search, download, and customize data.
