ASDC Data Pool
The Data Pool is an on-line data cache that provides FTP access to select ASDC data products. Specially subsetted and/or reformatted MISR data products supporting field campaigns are also available. Data files are stored in directories based on data product and acquisition date. Corresponding metadata files are also available in Extensible Markup Language (XML) format. A UNIX C shell script method may be used to assist in downloading files from the Data Pool (Readme | Sample script). Passive FTP mode is required to access the Data Pool from the command line as "ftp -p l5eil01.larc.nasa.gov", where the system translates to "lower case L 5ei lower case L zero one .larc.nasa.gov".
The Data Pool server l5eil01 will soon be transitioning to l5ftl01. Please make any necessary script updates and plan accordingly.
