PO.DAAC is continuing its transition towards a web portal that is content centered, data driven, and provides personalized user experiences that are supplemented with efficient search and discovery capabilities.

In this second phase, a user will experience improvements in the PO.DAAC Web Portal Dataset Search and Discovery powered by NASA Earthdata Common Metadata Repository (CMR) including free-text search, faceted search and filtering, and information displayed on the dataset landing pages.

The first phase of the web portal revitalization was focused on simplified, modernized design and several improvements towards a content, data-driven user experience. For more information, please check out the announcement and tutorial.

The second phase of the web portal revitalization is focused on improving the PO.DAAC Dataset Search and Discovery. This involves integration with NASA Earthdata Common Metadata Repository. CMR is a high-performance, high-quality, continuously evolving metadata system that catalogs all data and service metadata records for NASA's Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) system and will be the authoritative management system for all EOSDIS metadata. CMR metadata records are registered, modified, discovered, and accessed through programmatic interfaces leveraging standard protocols and APIs.

We invite you to explore the new PO.DAAC Web Portal Dataset Search and Discovery and provide us with your comments and feedback. Please contact podaac@podaac.jpl.nasa.gov or visit the PO.DAAC Forum.
