ERDDAP is a data server that gives you a simple, consistent way to download
subsets of gridded and tabular scientific datasets in common file formats and
to make graphs and maps. It transparently acts as a middleman between you and
data in various formats on disparate data servers.
East Coast Node will host an ERDDAP server in the near future, but until it
is available, please use the server at CoastWatch's
West Coast Node.
- Access data from the software of your choice, e.g. ArcGIS, R, Matlab.
- 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 of spatial and temporal environmental
studies with multiple data types.
ERDDAP is created and maintained by NOAA Fisheries, Southwest Fisheries
Science Center, Environmental Research Division and NOAA CoastWatch
West Coast Node, with funding from NOAA CoastWatch.
