ERDDAP is an environmental data server providing a simple, consistent way to:
It transparently acts as a middleman between you and environmental
data on disparate data servers.
- perform data analysis and visualization, e.g. to make maps and plots of
subsets of gridded and tabular scientific datasets in the file formats of
East Coast Node will host an ERDDAP server in the near future, but until it
is available, please use the following CoastWatch servers. Note that each
server hosts different data sets.
Caribbean/Gulf of Mexico Node
West Coast Node
Pacific (Hawai'i) Node
for using ERDDAP.
- Make customized maps and time series plots and export them as .png
or .pdf images.
- Include a customized map or plot in your own web pages using just a URL
to the ERDDAP server. The URL permits automatic real-time satellite updates
of your map or plot on your website.
- Export data in the format of your choice, e.g.
.html table, ESRI .asc and .csv, Google Earth .kml, .mat, .nc, .txt, .csv,
.json, and .xhtml
- Access data from the software of your choice, e.g. ArcGIS, R, Matlab.
- Both satellite (grid) and in-situ (tabular) data are included on
ERDDAP servers, facilitating analyses of spatial and temporal environmental
studies with multiple data types.
ERDDAP is created and maintained by NOAA Fisheries Service, Southwest Fisheries
Science Center, Environmental Research Division and NOAA CoastWatch
West Coast Node, with funding from NOAA CoastWatch.
