USGS Geo Data Portal
Many natural resource management questions involve a variety of data that are challenging to work with using typical computer resources. The USGS Geo Data Portal (GDP) removes the barrier to these large or complex data by moving processing to the web. This gives researchers and managers access to powerful computers and software tools with minimal effort, enabling them to produce important results with less investment. The Geo Data Portal (GDP) provides access to numerous datasets, including gridded data for climate and land use. Datasets can be subsetted or sumarized before download using several algorithms, and these algorithms can also be applied to other datasets hosted elsewhere.
