Event: Improving Accessibility and Use of NASA Earth Science Data

Date: Wednesday, 29 April 2015, 2 - 3PM ET

Register Now!

Many of NASA's Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC) multidimensional tropospheric and atmospheric chemistry data products, such as Measurement of Pollution in the Troposphere (MOPITT), Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR), Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES), Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation (CALIPSO) and Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer (TES), etc, are stored in HDF4, HDF5 or NetCDF format, which traditionally have been difficult to analyze and visualize with geospatial tools.

With the rising demand from the diverse end-user communities for geospatial tools to handle multidimensional products, several applications, such as ArcGIS, have refined their software.

Many geospatial applications now have new functionalities that enable the end user to:

  • Store, serve, and perform analysis on each individual variable, its time dimension, and vertical dimension.
  • Use NetCDF, GRIB, and HDF raster data formats across applications directly without extracting any subdataset.
  • Publish output within representational state transfer (REST) image services or Web Mapping Service (WMS) for time and space enabled web application development.

During this webinar, participants will learn how to leverage geospatial applications such as ArcGIS, Open-source Project for a Network Data Access Protocol (OPeNDAP) and ncWMS in the production of Earth science information, and in increasing data accessibility and usability.
