Earthdata drive is an login enabled alternative to using FTP for bulk data access to the GHRC public data server.
Because our users are accustomed to FTP access, the following steps are provided to outline how to set up Earthdata drive.
Earthdata Drive consists of a WebDAV interface, an extension of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) that allows clients to perform remote Web content authoring operations. WebDAV allows you to connect to the GHRC public data server as if it were a local drive on your computer.
To begin, click the link on this page https://fog.nsstc.nasa.gov/drive/
In order to connect with WebDAV, you need to use your assigned credentials which consist of your Earthdata login username and the WebDAV password assigned by the system, as shown on the Earthdata Drive page below
One can click the button shown at the bottom of the page to browse files and explore what you might want to download first
