WIST is a (very slow) search interface that can be used to access a wide variety of NASA datasets. Some are free, some datasets cost money. The broad categories listed on the website are:

  • Atmosphere
  • Cryosphere
  • Land
  • Oceans
  • Solar/Other

After a particular dataset is chosen, an interactive globe is used to specify over which regions the data should be collected. A date/time range can also be selected as well as other options.

  • Much of the data requires the user to create a login/profile.
  • Some of the data is free, some requires a payment.
