About

OpenAltimetry is a cyberinfrastructure platform for discovery, access, and visualization of data from NASA’s ICESat and ICESat-2 missions. These laser profiling altimeters are being used to measure changes in the topography of Earth’s ice sheets, vegetation canopy structure, and clouds and aerosols. The unique data from these missions require a new paradigm for data access, to serve the needs of a diverse scientific community and to increase the accessibility and utility of these data for new users.

OpenAltimetry is a NASA funded collaborative project between the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, San Diego Supercomputer Center, National Snow and Ice Data Center and UNAVCO.
