Navigating the New LP DAAC Website
Searching for Data

The LP DAAC recently released a new website designed to help you find the right data for your project. It has several search options.

Option 1: Get Started

On lpdaac.usgs.gov hover over "Data" and click on "Get Started with Data." Then click "Collection Overview." Here you can learn more about the various data collections available from the LP DAAC. If you see a collection you're interested in, click "Products Table" to see a list of ever available product from that sensor or collection.

Option 2: Search Data Catalog

For more direct access to the data catalog, hover over "Data" and click "Search Data Catalog." Here you can search the entire catalog of LP DAAC products. Try typing "NDVI" into the search bar. You'll see all of the NDVI related data products from the LP DAAC. Let's filter this down to show only S-NPP VIIRS data products. Let's filter by spatial resolution as well. To compare and contrast the search results more easily, switch to a list view.

Option 3: General Site Search 

To more broadly search the entire LP DAAC website, click the magnifying glass in the menu. We'll type "LST" to search for Land Surface Temperature. The General Site Search returns data products, e-learning resources, Data in Action stories, news items and more. Use the filtering options to narrow your results by content type, collection, or keyword.
