At NextGEOSS Data Catalogue, Data Discovery is accessible for you to explore Earth observation data, via standard Application Program Interfaces (APIs), using a simple 2-step data discovery query.
The data discovery APIs are free and based on Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) compliant inter-operable open standards. Your service / application processing can remotely access these Standard APIs, to systematically feed the data you need from any cloud platform. The Data Discovery is intended as an Machine to Machine (M2M) Application Programming Interface (API) that provides a standardized way of submitting search queries and receiving results via HTTP with a special protocol. The results are returned as XML.
NextGEOSS Catalogue also provides an online User Interface for you to navigate manually through the list of data providers, collections, and data products currently being harvested. You can also explore other Pilot Applications, who are currently being deployed with NextGEOSS Data Hub and Platform.
