PO.DAAC User Acceptance Tools (UAT)

Beta versions of select PO.DAAC Tools and Services accessible to the public for feedback.  


Metadata Compliance Checker (MCC)  Version: 1.2

The Metadata Compliance Checker (MCC) is an online tool and web service designed to check and validate the contents of netCDF and HDF granules for the Climate and Forecast (CF) and Attribute Convention for Dataset Discovery (ACDD) metadata conventions.  It produces quantitative scoring for these convention attributes as HTML, PDF or JSON outputs. It also checks GHRSST version 2 data formats as applicable.  It works with both user locally uploaded data as well as data that are accessible via OPeNDAP. The MCC is based on open source software originally developed by NOAA that has been extended with additional functionality and reporting.

MCC Test Period: 1 February, 2017 - 1 May, 2017

PO.DAAC Drive Version: 1.1

PO.DAAC Drive is a new way of browsing data at PO.DAAC. Drive is an FTP alternative that allows users to access data via browser and command line as has been traditionally done, but can also allow users to mount the remote data to your own computer, seeing the data as if you had the entire PO.DAAC archive mounted on your own machine! A few simple steps will have you up and running with PO.DAAC Drive.

PO.DAAC Drive Test Period: 8 March, 2016 - 1 May, 2017
