Custom Data Request Form


Any scientist or research group whose work is either supported by NERC, or is eligible for a NERC research grant or training award, may apply to NEODAAS for data processing services. To ensure cost effective use of the limited resources available, all applications for data processing are peer-reviewed and graded using procedures and criteria that are consistent with those used elsewhere in NERC. The highest quality proposals are given the highest priority, with those less highly graded being accommodated where possible. It should also be noted that for commercial work and some commissioned research NEODAAS may be obliged to pass on specific costs to users.

If you have not previously applied for NEODAAS data we would recommend contacting us before filling in this form to discuss your requirements. Please include the following information:

  • Area you are interested in (ideally coordinates of bounding box).
  • Time period you are interested in (can be in the future for NRT support is required).
  • Datasets you would like or details about your intended use if you would like recommendations from us.

If you are filling in a NERC grant where you are likely to require NEODAAS support please contact us before submitting the grant as the NEODAAS support must be requested as part of the JeS form.

Please note: Your submitted data will be kept in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), please see our Privacy Policy for more details.

Please enter a description of the dataset(s) you require. This will normally have been discussed with NEODAAS and the most appropriate datasets for your application identified. You can paste the recomendation from NEODAAS here with any further information you wish to add.


*
To provide improved coverage (e.g., due to gaps because of cloud cover) we normally recommend temporal averaging. The period over which data are averaged will depend on the type of data and your application. This is something which should be discussed with NEODAAS before putting in the application.





*
There are many formats used for Earth Observation data. The netCDF format is used internally by NEODAAS and it if the recomended format for data delivery. However, we are able to provide data in different formats if needed. We are also able to produce plots alongside data for quick visualisation, this is normally recomended if applying for NRT support. If you have more specific requirements for data visualisation (e.g., animations) we are able to supply these or provide training on how to generate.







Project Details

It is expected that the data provided through NEODAAS will form part of a larger project, which will cover staff time for data analysis. The information provided here will be used as part of the review process to determine if NEODAAS will support the application for data processing.
