EOSDIS Architecture Framework
Satellite Data Scenario #1 FunctionEOSDIS ApproachDescription 1)Level Zero Processing EDOS Level 0 data handling system Data captured from satellite-based instruments enters EOSDIS via the EOS Data and Operations System (EDOS) Level 0 data handling system 2)Science Processing Science Investigator-led Processing Systems (SIPS) The Science Investigator-led Processing Systems (SIPSs) collect Level 0 data and process these products into higher level products. 3)Archive ECS, Data Center specific systems The EOSDIS data centers, many of which are also Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs), perform the functions of ingest, storage, data management and access. 4)Discovery ECHO/WIST/Data Center specific systems The EOSDIS provides a metadata handling function by which the data system keeps track of its vast data collection and data center unique search and order systems. 5)NetworksNISN, Internet2 Effective access to EOSDIS depends on the end-to-end network connectivity between users and geographically distributed EOSDIS Data Centers. 6) Data System Standard Interfaces Interface Definition, Verification and Validation EOSDIS fosters the development of standards used within science data processing systems. The Hierarchical Data Format (HDF), was selected as the data format to be used for archiving and distributing data products for EOS instruments. 7) Performance Monitoring ESDIS Metrics System, Annual User Surveys The EMS supports the ESDIS project management by collecting and organizing a variety of metrics from the distributed data centers and other data providers (such as the GCMD and ESDIS-sponsored websites). 8) Systems and Sustaining Engineering ESDIS Systems Management Process EOSDIS is managed by the ESDIS Project which oversees the planning and funding for the EOSDIS system delegating local authority to individual data centers to implement the system needed to satisfy their discipline community.

Descriptions of EOSDIS data holdings can be found at the archiving data center. See AMSR-E at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC). Select the Order Data option.
Users have a variety of ways to access EOSDIS data. For example select the WIST option.
Warehouse Inventory Search Tool (WIST) The EOS ClearingHouse (ECHO) is a metadata catalog of NASA’s EOS data and a registry for related data services (e.g. reformatting, pattern recognition). ECHO’s catalog contains more than 2800 data sets held at 12 EOSDIS data centers. WIST, the Warehouse Inventory Search Tool, is the primary web-based client for discovering and ordering cross-discipline data from all of ECHO’s metadata holdings. WIST allows users, including those without specific knowledge of the data, to search science data holdings, retrieve high-level descriptions of data sets and detailed descriptions of the data inventory, view browse images, and submit orders via ECHO to the appropriate data providers. The WIST search-and-order tool has the following features: Search capability—Allows a user to explore the list of data sets or granules returned by a search by viewing their temporal coverage, spatial coverage, attributes (metadata), related documents (guide search), and browse images. Order function—Allows the user to select data for ordering, choose packaging information, enter ordering information (such as shipping address), place an order, and view order status. Reference:

EOSDIS Reference Architecture Plan both a document & website EOSDIS Reference Architecture Draft – Under discussion and drafting components DAACs Committee of NASA data system planners – Scenarios Developed Satellite Data Field Campaign Airborne Basic Website in place However, the reference architecture only documents EOSDIS functions in a very broad approach – Does not take the place of official NPR documentation – Each new Mission requires direct communication and distinct documentation

EOSDIS Business Model Budget preparation and tracking of actual expenses is performed across the Project. Components of EOSDIS submit yearly budgets and work plans Budgets and actuals are tracked monthly against phasing plans and schedules Metrics are collected for both technical and fiscal management Coordination across the architecture allows for cost savings
