Tutorials available for working with NISAR sample data

In preparation for the launch of the NISAR mission, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) has developed some sample NISAR products for users to explore. These sample data give users an idea of what the NISAR data products will look like once the mission is operational. The sample data products familiarize one with formats and allow one to develop workflows supporting NISAR datasets.

ASF has developed tutorials demonstrating how to work with the sample data products using various software suitable for visualizing, analyzing, and transforming geospatial data. Included are sections for working with the data in a GIS environment (ArcGIS Pro, QGIS), exploring the data using Panoply, and transforming the data using GDAL commands.
