ERDDAP is an environmental data server providing a simple, consistent way to:

  • perform data analysis and visualization, e.g. to make maps and plots of time series
  • download subsets of gridded and tabular scientific datasets in the file formats of your choice
  • use programming languages such as R and Python to access and analyze data from within your own programs
It transparently acts as a middleman between you and environmental data on disparate data servers.

Please use the following CoastWatch servers. Note that generally each server hosts different data sets with some overlap. East Coast Node is in the process of adding data sets to the CoastWatch-Central ERDDAP server.

  • CoastWatch-Central
  • Caribbean/Gulf of Mexico Node
  • West Coast Node
  • Pacific (Hawai'i) Node
  • PolarWatch
  • Online tutorials for using ERDDAP:

    Some ERDDAP features:
    • 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
    • Both satellite (grid) and in-situ (tabular) data are included on ERDDAP servers, facilitating analyses for spatial and temporal environmental studies.
