Abbreviation:LP DAAC

General Information
The Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC) processes, archives, and distributes land data products to users in the earth science community. Raw data collected from specific satellite sensors, such as ASTER onboard NASA’s Terra satellite, are received and processed into a readable and interpretable format. The LP DAAC continually archives a wide variety of land remote sensing data products collected by sensors onboard satellites, aircraft, and the International Space Station (ISS). The LP DAAC operates as a partnership between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The LP DAAC is one of the Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs) that archive and distribute earth science data, managed by NASA's Earth Science Data and Information System Project (ESDIS), as part of the Earth Science Data Systems (ESDS) Program.
