Title: MODIS, Aster, VIIRS (NASA) Data Information, Citation, and Rights Policies
Abstract:

Data Distribution Policy:

All LP DAAC current data and products acquired through the LP DAAC have no restrictions on reuse, sale, or redistribution.

ASTER GDEM Version 3 (ASTGTM V003) was released on August, 5, 2019 and contains no redistribution requirements. The LP DAAC kindly requests that you properly cite the data in your research. Pre-populated citations for the product can be found on the DOI Landing Page for the product under the "Citation" section. Users are encouraged to use ASTER GDEM Version 3 going forward as ASTER GDEM Version 2 data are no longer available from the LP DAAC.

Previously ASTER GDEM Version 2 (ASTGTM V002) data required users to agree to only redistribute data products to individuals within their organization or project of intended use, or in response to disasters in support ofthe GEO Disaster Theme prior to downloading data. In addition, the following sentence was required to be included in publications that used the data: "ASTER GDEM is a product of Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI) and NASA." Projects that are continuing to use ASTER GDEM Version 2 data are required to continue following these redistribution and citation requirements. "

Data Information and Policy:

NASA's Earth Science program was established to use the advanced technology of NASA to understand and protect our home planet by using our view from space to study the Earth system and improve prediction of Earth system change. To meet this challenge, NASA promotes the full and open sharing of all data with the research and applications communities, private industry, academia, and the general public. The greater the availability of the data, the more quickly and effectively the user communities can utilize the information to address basic Earth science questions and provide the basis for developing innovative practical applications to benefit the general public.

A common set of carefully crafted data exchange and access principles was created by the Japanese, European and U.S. International Earth Observing System (IEOS) partners during the 1990s and the early years of the 21st century. From these principles, NASA has adopted the following data policy (in this context the term 'data' includes observation data, metadata, products, information, algorithms, including scientific source code, documentation, models, images, and research results).

Data Rights & Related Issues:

In order to implement our data policy tenet that algorithms, including scientific source code, be included in the term data, and be shared fully and openly, the following alternate “Data Rights” clause was created by NASA to include in Cooperative Agreements and Contracts with data providers supported by NASA.
