The New Earthdata Forum Has Answers

Tuesday, March 3, 2020

The new Earthdata Forum provides a central location where data users can interact with subject matter experts from multiple DAACs to discuss general questions about research needs and data applications, and receive help on specific queries about accessing, viewing, and manipulating NASA Earth observing data.


Five EOSDIS DAACs currently are participating in the Earthdata Forum:


Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC)
Crustal Dynamics Data Information System (CDDIS)
Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC)
Global Hydrology Resource Center DAAC (GHRC DAAC)
Land Processes DAAC (LP DAAC)


Experts from NASA’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory DAAC (ORNL DAAC) and Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC) will soon join the Forum. DAAC experts supporting the Earthdata Forum are available Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm, Eastern Time, although users can post a question at any time. An Earthdata Login is required to post questions to the Forum. Users without an account can set one up quickly and easily at the Earthdata Login registration page.
