EarthData Pathfinders & Data toolkits

New to using NASA Earth observations? NASA's EarthData Pathfinders are resources designed to help guide you through the process of selecting data products and learning how to use them. Pathfinders provide direct access to the most commonly-used data sets and data products across NASA’s Earth science data collections. They also provide different ways of visualizing the data, options for creating subsets of the data and options for saving the data in different file formats.

Pathfinder Topics

NASA's remote sensing data help scientists, researchers, decision makers, and more understand the contributing forces and the impacts of catastrophic events. NASA also provides near real-time (NRT) data for time critical applications.
