Earthdata Search

Basic page describing Earthdata Search with resources for additional information.

Earthdata Search is the powerful search and discovery application for NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS). Developed by NASA’s Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS) Project and hosted in the Earthdata Cloud, Earthdata Search pulls together a number of EOSDIS services: the Common Metadata Repository (CMR), Global Imagery Browse Services (GIBS), EOSDIS Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) services, Harmony, and Earthdata Login. Using CMR as a foundation, Earthdata Search enables sub-second searches through the nearly 50 petabytes (PB) of data in the EOSDIS collection.
