Introduction

Welcome to the Earth Science Data Interface (ESDI) from the Global Land Cover Facility at the University of Maryland. This online application allows for easy searching, browsing, and downloading of our data holdings. If you are a first time user, read the following topics to quickly get started.
  • Web Browser Requirements:
  • Register for an Account: Before starting you should register for a free ESDI account. This is not required but having an account allows you to save your results into your personal Workspace that can then be accessed at any time.
  • Navigating Around: This topic shows you how to quickly navigate around the various screens in ESDI.
  • Map Search: Use this to easily search for data shown on a map.
  • Path/Row Search: Advanced users who know the WRS paths and rows for Landsat can use this text-based form instead of using the map.
  • Product Search: Use this search option to get data from our derived products by selecting attributes of the data without using the map.
