This video focuses on the Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center’s (LP DAAC) Data Pool and DAAC2Disk. The Data Pool provides direct access to the publicly available data products from the LP DAAC archive. DAAC2Disk enables users to download multiple data products from the Data Pool using a web-based interface, as a script executed from the command line. Data products accessible from Data Pool include those collected by the Aqua and Terra Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) sensors, the Terra Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) sensor, and many more. This video answers common user driven questions about Data Pool and DAAC2Disk. Note: The DAAC2Disk Web-Based Interface has since been retired. However, users can still access the DAAC2Disk Utility.
