Advancing Collaborative Connections for Earth System Science (ACCESS) Program

NASA's Advancing Collaborative Connections for Earth System Science (ACCESS) Program develops and implements technologies to effectively manage, discover, and utilize NASA’s archive of Earth observations for scientific research and applications. The program complements NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) by engaging external researchers and software developers in NASA's mission to "drive advances in science, technology, aeronautics, space exploration, economic vitality, and stewardship of the Earth" and Strategic Goal 2.2 to "advance knowledge of Earth as a system to meet the challenges of environmental change and to improve life on our planet."

Awarded ACCESS projects (2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017 ) have significantly advanced discovery, management, use, and analysis of large and complex Earth science datasets and have benefited the research and applied science communities.
