AρρEEARS API Download Will Need Earthdata Login Authentication

Feb 04, 2022

The Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC) Application for Extracting and Exploring Analysis Ready Samples (AρρEEARS) team will be implementing the Earthdata Login authentication for downloading files from Graphic User Interface (GUI) and Application Programming Interface (API) on March 7, 2022. GUI users should not expect any changes in how they download results from AρρEEARS. API users will be required to update their workflow(s) in order to download outputs via API. The AρρEEARS API Documentation will be modified with the latest changes. Please follow LP DAAC News and subscribe to the LP DAAC Listserv by sending a blank email to lpdaac-join@lists.nasa.gov to learn about the upcoming AρρEEARS releases.
