Land Processes DAAC (LP DAAC)
Land Processes Digital Active Archive Center
The Land Processes DAAC processes, archives, and distributes Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) from Terra. The LP DAAC is located at the U.S. Department of the Interior, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center in Sioux Falls, SD. The LP DAAC was established in 1990 to process NASA land processes data products and provide vital contributions to inter-disciplinary studies of the integrated Earth system.
Archives and distributes Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectraradiometer (MODIS) from Terra & Aqua.
Distributes NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Collaborations:
- Global Forest Cover Change (GFCC)
- Web-Enabled Landsat Data (WELD)
- Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM)
- Vegetation Index & Phenology (VIP)
Provides tools and services for discovery and analysis of NASA's land cover and land use data.
The LP DAAC ingests, processes, archives, and distributes data products related to land processes derived from two EOS sensors, ASTER and MODIS. The LP DAAC provides data crucial to the investigation, characterization, and monitoring of biological, geological, hydrological, ecological, and related conditions and processes. In doing so, it promotes the interdisciplinary study and understanding of Earth’s integrated systems.
LP DAAC ordering tools are available to discover LP DAAC data. Users may obtain selected ASTER and MODIS data products through GDEx, GloVis, Land Processes Data Pool, and MRTWeb. Further details regarding these tools are available from: https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/get_data. All LP DAAC data collections are available to search and order through Reverb. Users may also acquire data through FTP delivery.
