Adding New Data to EOSDIS

NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) is responsible for the storage and public distribution of NASA Earth science data. EOSDIS partners with data creators and providers to archive and serve their data to a global community of millions of users. EOSDIS offers this service through discipline-specific and common tools, at no cost to the data provider, with the added benefit of protecting data from disaster and technology obsolescence.

How to Submit Your Data

Because each mission is unique, the process and requirements for submission will vary depending on the source of your data. It all starts with:

  • Contacting us to initiate the process
  • Scheduling a meeting to discuss requirements
  • Completing required documentation (see below)

To learn more about the processes and requirements, please select one of the following links based on the source of your data:

  • Orbital and Airborne—satellite, Earth Venture, and Airborne Investigations
  • Competitive Programs and Other Data Products—New data products from existing missions or other research activities, including:
    • Data Development Programs (e.g., Advancing Collaborative Connections for Earth System Science [ACCESS], Citizen Science for Earth Systems Program [CSESP], and Making Earth Science Data Records for Use in Research Environments [MEaSUREs])
    • NASA-funded researchers: Research and Analysis (R&A) and Applied Science
    • Miscellaneous ad hoc requests for new data products (not produced by NASA-funded projects)

NASA has developed an official declaration of “Data Rights” for those who submit their data to EOSDIS.

If you are ready to get started contact us.
