LASP Time Series Server (LaTiS)


The LASP Time Series Server (LaTiS) is an API that allows software programs to access most data sets on LISIRD.* LaTiS provides customizable data access functionality. With a LaTiS URL a client can:

  • select a data set
  • specify the desired variables
  • specify the desired range
  • pass the result through a number of filters
  • specify an output format

Specific details about LaTiS are provided below.

*Some data sets are not currently served by LaTiS. Information about their APIs may be found on their respective LISIRD pages.
