CEOS WGISS Integrated Catalog (CWIC)

The CEOS WGISS Integrated Catalog

The CWIC Project provides the world’s satellite Earth observation data providers with a way to make their data collections searchable using common standards. This webpage provides technical resources for potential CWIC data partners and clients. For more general information about CWIC or how to get involved, please contact  Yonsook Enloe.

Watch this video to learn how information in the International Directory Network (IDN) is used with CWIC to help users identify and access satellite data of interest.

Note: The CWIC Project originated as the WADC Project.
