System Performance and Metrics

The Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS) Project collects metrics from across the Earth Observation System Data and Information System (EOSDIS). EOSDIS Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs) support different scientific disciplines and provide an individualized set of products and services to their science community and the public. Although discipline oriented, the DAACs engage in common data management functions of ingest, archive and distribution, as well as describing their data and services on web sites.

An annual summary of the most recent fiscal year statistics appears in the table below.
