We are pleased to announce an update to the PO.DAAC High-Level Tool for Interactive Data Extraction (HiTIDE) tool.

Version 4.8.2 is now available online at For questions or to provide feedback, please visit the HiTIDE Forum.

HiTIDE, the High-level Tool for Interactive Data Extraction, allows users to subset and download popular PO.DAAC level 2 (swath) datasets. Users can search across a wide variety of parameters, such as variables, sensors and platforms, and filter the resulting data based on spatial and temporal boundaries of interest to the user. HiTIDE goes even further, offering instant previews of variable imagery, allowing users to rapidly find data of interest for download and further, rigorous scientific analysis.

Version 4.8.2 fixes broken links to dataset landing pages, and improves the user experience by now persisting tool selections and configurations after authenticating with Earthdata login for downloads. Other changes "under the hood" have been made that will allow HiTIDE users to eventually work with cloud-native datasets.

To best experience HiTIDE, we recommend using a recent version of one of the following browsers: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Apple Safari. (Note that Internet Explorer is not currently supported.) Additionally, we recommend that prior to first loading the new HiTIDE, you clear your browser's cache.
