Smart Hand Offs and Earthdata Search

Abstract: Often a science user will discover data of interest in a general-purpose discovery tool like Earthdata Search. At that point it might be beneficial for the science user to switch to a more specialized tool. Smart handoffs allow the user to switch from one tool to another with their context (collection, spatial and temporal constraints) intact. This provides an efficient means of traversing tools and services. The idea of smart handoffs could be expanded to commercial search engines such as Go…
