Primary Data Sets GES DISC DAAC Data Set AVHRR Pathfinder CZCS DAO MODIS (Terra) SeaWiFS TOMS TOVS Pathfinder TRMM UARS DAS AIRS Aura SORCE February 28, 2002 Format Temporal Coverage HDF (subsets in binary) Binary Binary HDF-EOS HDF HDF HDF (subsets in binary) HDF Binary HDF-EOS HDF-EOS HDF5-EOS HDF5 Jul 1981 to Oct 2001 Oct 1978 to Jun 1986 Mar 1980 to Nov 1993 Dec 1999 to Present Dec 1996 to Present Nov 1978 to Present Nov 1978 to Jul 1995 Dec 1997 to Present Sep 1991 to Sep 2001 (soon) Mar 2002 (launch) Jul 2003 (launch) Jul 2002 (launch) HDF-EOS Workshop V 3

GES DISC DAAC HDF & HDF-EOS Applications Universal Data Reduction Server (UDRS) Distributed Oceanographic Data System (DODS) Web Mapping Testbed (WMT-DODS)/OpenGIS Live Access Server (LAS)/Ferret Gridded Analysis and Display System (GrADS-DODS) Online data Analysis (OASIS) read_hdf generic reader other data set specific read software, including MODIS February 28, 2002 HDF-EOS Workshop V 4

GES DISC DAAC Universal Data Reduction Server A virtual server consisting of: DODS server WMT-DODS server GrADS-DODS server LAS/Ferret (others can be added) Allows a variety of discipline, interdisciplinary and applications users to access DAAC data February 28, 2002 HDF-EOS Workshop V 5

GES DISC DAAC Distributed Oceanographic Data Server DODS developed by URI and UCAR a protocol for requesting and transporting data across the web Transparently supports multiple formats Subsetting performed at server end Supports various servers (netCDF, HDF, GrADS, MatLAB, FreeForm,…) Supports various clients (IDL, MatLAB, Ferret, LAS, GrADS, …) Various DAAC data sets served by DODS (see February 28, 2002 HDF-EOS Workshop V 6

GES DISC DAAC Web Mapping Testbed WMT-DODS Server OpenGIS consortium Import HDF & HDF-EOS data into GIS packages Supports geolocated images Interface to many DODS servers DAAC external (see February 28, 2002 HDF-EOS Workshop V 7

GrADS-DODS Server GES DISC DAAC Developed by Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies (COLA) Supports data analysis functions (statistical, smoothing, correlation, …) Subset data Work on single or multiple files Supports several data formats (HDF, netCDF, GRIB, binary, …) Interfaces with DODS DAAC Server to go operational later this year February 28, 2002 HDF-EOS Workshop V 8

GES DISC DAAC Live Access Server/ Ferret LAS developed by NOAA Web GUI interface (Ferret) Interfaces with DODS Visualize data Subset data Save to various formats Custom data set specific templates added by DAAC Support for MODIS and SeaWiFS (coming soon) February 28, 2002 HDF-EOS Workshop V 9

Atmospheric Dynamics OASIS GES DISC DAAC Web Interface Uses JAVA applets Perform data analysis online Intercomparison Visualize data Animations Supports DAAC atmospheric dynamics data HDF & HDF-EOS support coming soon (see ine_analysis/OASIS/html /) February 28, 2002 HDF-EOS Workshop V 10

read_hdf GES DISC DAAC Interactive command line C program Generic, supports any HDF file Display hierarchical tree of useful objects (SDS, Vdata, Vgroup, Raster Images, Annotations) Subset data Output to ASCII or binary Also dump any obscure HDF object (DFTAG_NT, DFTAG_VERSION, etc.) February 28, 2002 HDF-EOS Workshop V 11

GES DISC DAAC Other DAAC HDF Applications MODIS readers and visualization (IDL based) (see geoview modis_atmos simap HDFLook-MODIS (collaboration between DAAC and the Laboratoire d’Optique Atmosphérique, France) SeaWiFS data best used with SeaWiFS’ SeaDAS package TRMM data reader and IDL based TSDIS orbit viewer Other DAAC data sets include C, Fortran and/or IDL readers February 28, 2002 HDF-EOS Workshop V 12

HDF & HDF-EOS Issues GES DISC DAAC Large file sizes (MODIS, AVHRR) requires lots of bandwidth for downloading end user needs lots of disk space non-standard Grid projections User frustration reluctance to accept HDF (prefer ASCII, binary, other formats) download and install libraries (two for HDF-EOS) confusion - HDF, HDF-EOS, and now HDF5 Poor HDF layout/implementation (or not self documenting) cryptic field and file names no field level attributes or descriptions of file contents too many fields internal compression rarely utilized February 28, 2002 HDF-EOS Workshop V 13
