Community Data System Programs

NASA views its data systems in terms of “Core” and “Community” capabilities. The core capabilities provide the basic infrastructure for robust and reliable data capture, processing, archiving, and distributing a set of data products to a large and diverse user community.

Community capabilities provide specialized and innovative services to data users and/or research products offering new scientific insight. Such systems are generally supported by NASA through peer-reviewed competition via the following programs. View current and past projects within each program.

  • Advancing Collaborative Connections for Earth System Science (ACCESS), and
  • Making Earth System data records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) programs.
