PO.DAAC is pleased to announce the operational release of PO.DAAC Drive, version 1.4.3: https://podaac-tools.jpl.nasa.gov/drive/
PO.DAAC Drive provides an FTP alternative for browsing and retrieving data at PO.DAAC. It offers file navigation and download through an interface served directly through your browser, and with a familiar look and feel. It also allows users to access data via a command line so that interactions can be easily scripted. As a new feature, thanks to the underlying open technologies, it also enables mounting the remote data to your own local computer, seeing the data as if you had the entire PO.DAAC archive mounted on your own machine.
PO.DAAC thanks the users who participated in the Acceptance Testing of Drive, and invites the whole community to explore and leverage Drive for direct file access.
As always, your feedback is both needed and welcome - please feel free to post questions or feedback to the PO.DAAC Drive Forum
