Simple Subset Wizard: Tool for Provide a Simple, Unified User Interface for Submitting Subset Requests for Data

Summary
Abstract: The Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) has teamed with nine of other NASA Earth Observing System Data & Information System (EOSDIS) Data Centers to develop the Simple Subset Wizard (SSW), which is designed to provide a simple, unified user interface for submitting subset requests for data. The SSW uses an agent-based architecture to interface with the diversity of subsetters across EOSDIS. To date, eight of the data centers offer subsetting services through SSW, with two more soon to come.

The SSW currently has 11 agents to interface with different subsetters, which support the subsetting of 217 EOSDIS data sets. The SSW provides the capability to subset by either temporal range or spatial region, although not all subsetters have both of these capabilities. Furthermore, some subsetters will impose limits on the number of files that can be subsetted in a single request.

Description: The Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) is a key core capability in NASA’s Earth Science Data Systems Program. It provides end-to-end capabilities for managing NASA’s Earth science data from various sources – satellites, aircraft, field measurements, and various other programs. For the EOS satellite missions, EOSDIS provides capabilities for command and control, scheduling, data capture and initial (Level 0) processing. These capabilities, constituting the EOSDIS Mission Operations, are managed by the Earth Science Mission Operations (ESMO) Project. NASA network capabilities transport the data to the science operations facilities.

The remaining capabilities of EOSDIS constitute the EOSDIS Science Operations, which are managed by the Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS) Project. These capabilities include: generation of higher level (Level 1-4) science data products for EOS missions; archiving and distribution of data products from EOS and other satellite missions, as well as aircraft and field measurement campaigns. The EOSDIS science operations are performed within a distributed system of many interconnected nodes (Science Investigator-led Processing Systems and distributed, discipline-specific, Earth science data centers) with specific responsibilities for production, archiving, and distribution of Earth science data products. The distributed data centers serve a large and diverse user community (as indicated by EOSDIS performance metrics) by providing capabilities to search and access science data products and specialized services.
