Webinar: Access NASA Land Processes Data with Web Based Services

Join us on Tuesday, 15 March 2016, 2 - 3 PM ET​ to learn about web based services at the NASA Land Processes DAAC. Participants will learn how to interact with and use them, and will see how LP DAAC utilized them to build User Interfaces such as AppEEARS, a point-based extraction tool.

The Big Earth Data Initiative (BEDI) was undertaken to facilitate work to improve data access capabilities for all users of NASA Earth Science data. NASA's Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC) responded to the initiative by creating a new strategy for making LP DAAC data available via web based services. LP DAAC deployed data access services (OPeNDAP) to provide access to data, Middleware/Metadata services to provide information and details about the data, and then developed User Interfaces (UI) and Application Program Interfaces (API) to utilize and consume these services to provide the specific data that users desire.

This presentation will show how these different levels of services were created and how they can function together as a tool for users to gain specific insight into the data provided by LP DAAC. LP DAAC’s Application for Extracting and Exploring Analysis Ready Samples (AppEEARS) point extraction tool capabilities will also be explored and explained.
