On April 1, 2016, NASA’s Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center
(LP DAAC) began distributing ASTER Level 1 Precision Terrain Corrected
Registered At-Sensor Radiance (AST_L1T
data products over the entire globe at no charge.

The AST_L1T product provides a quick turn-around of consistent GIS-ready
data as a multi-file product. Files in the product include: a HDF-EOS data
file, full-resolution composite GeoTIFFs, and associated metadata files. In
addition, each AST_L1T granule contains related products including
low-resolution browse, and when applicable, a Quality Assurance (QA) browse
and QA text report.

More than 2.95 million scenes of archived ASTER data are now available for
direct download through the LP DAAC Data Pool
<https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/data_access/data_pool>and for search and download
through NASA’s Earthdata Search Client <https://earthdata.nasa.gov/> and
USGS’ GloVis <http://glovis.usgs.gov/>. New scenes will be added as they
are acquired and archived.

ASTER is a partnership between NASA, Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and
Industry (METI), the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and
Technology (AIST) in Japan, and Japan Space Systems (J-spacesystems).
