NASA Land Information System (LIS) Data Sets
Entry ID: NASA_LIS_DATA

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Land Information System (LIS) provides collection of sample data for
demonstration of LIS code. The original source of each data set is given
whenever possible. LIS does not endorse the validity, completeness, or
usefulness of the data sets. Users are strongly recommended to compile and
validate their own data sets based on their scientific goals. LIS has the
built-in flexibility for users to easily incorporate their own data sets.

The sample data are archived and served in three categories:

1. land surface parameters
2. atmospheric forcing
3. LIS model output.

They are available either by: HTTP, which enables you to directly download data
files; or by GrADS-DODS server (GDS), which enables you to access a
user-defined subset of the sample data.

A web-based visualization system called "Land Explorer" (LE) has been developed
to visualize the data sets. LE tightly integrates with the LIS Grads-DODS
server. It is designed to let users interactively visualize and explore the
sample and other data sets at all resolutions, featuring an intuitive web
interface and fast response.

domain:

1. That a message be included acknowledging the LIS development team at NASA
GSFC.

2. That modifications which may be considered generally useful, be forwarded so
that they might be incorporated into future releases of LIS.

Regarding the commercial use of LIS, be aware that LIS does integrate software

for any matter concerning the LIS data and related software, performance of,
failure to perform, breach or other matter related to this agreement. The
User's sole remedy for any such matter shall be the immediate, unilateral
termination of this agreement. The United States and the developers of the LIS
data and related software shall not be liable for any damage or injury suffered

expressly waives any rights it might otherwise have under the Federal Tort
Claims Act or any other authority, in consideration for NASA's agreement to
provide the LIS data and related software under this agreement. User, under
this section, includes any further user to which the User provides the LIS data
and related software and/or works based upon the LIS data and related software.

The User shall indemnify and hold harmless the United States and the developers
of the LIS data and related software from any third party liability arising
under the Federal Tort Claims Act or any other authority, out of the LIS data
and related software, or out of performance of, or failure to perform, any
aspect of this agreement, whether or not caused by the negligence, gross
negligence or willful misconduct of employees of the United States or the
