NASA Earth Data And You
Accessing NASA Earth-observing data, services and tools has never been easier. We connect scientists with our data by simplifying and streamlining search, discovery and visualization.
These data are free and open to the public, and we welcome researchers and citizen scientists to explore EarthData and utilize Earth observations.
New to using NASA Earth observations? EarthData’s Pathfinders are 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.
Heath & Air Quality
Access data most commonly used by natural resource managers, city and regional planners, air quality managers and various federal agencies to monitor air pollutants locally, regionally and globally and further determine the risk for health conditions or diseases exacerbated by poor air quality.
