The time and effort required to discover, visualize, and analyze large quantities of information and Earth science data for research and other applications present a great challenge to Earth science investigation. Existing data and information systems support experienced users, but prove difficult for new users that are unfamiliar with the variety of formats and structures in which data, metadata, and information are stored, as well as the required methods to use them. To address these challenges, NASA Earthdata is establishing an enterprise level, cloud-based solutions to support all DAACs. GHRC DAAC is actively participating and serves as the pathfinder for this cloud-based transition. This presentation will discuss GHRC’s activities to transition the user experience to the cloud, how these efforts are being applied (e.g., tools, visualizations, and analysis), and how this supports users.
