Event: 2018 Ocean Surface Topography Science Team Meeting

Presentation type: Type Poster

NASA IT security has announced that all FTP will be shut down at all NASA centers. The problem with this is that the majority of PO.DAAC users obtain data via FTP. PO.DAAC has developed new ways of accessing data to replace FTP. This presentation will show how data can be accessed without FTP via protocols, tools and services. HTTPS will provide the closest look and feel to FTP, but will require user registration. You can also choose to mount the PO.DAAC directory structure onto your own machine using EarthData Drive. The other services that PO.DAAC provides will remain, such as web services, OPeNDAP, THREDDS and HiTIDE. Recipes on how to leverage these services can be found on the PO.DAAC forum.
