STAC For Data Users
Users of spatial temporal data are often burdened with building unique pipelines for each different collection of data they consume. The STAC community has defined this specification to remove this complexity and spur common tooling.
If you're looking for public data to conduct research or to interact with SpatioTemporal data for the first time, the STAC spec is a consistent format that is used by many of the biggest providers of remote sensing & spatiotemporal data.
If you'd like to get involved with the STAC community, the How to Help page is a good place to learn about our active needs. If you're not sure where to begin, say hi in the STAC Gitter chat, and you'll likely find someone who will be more than happy to point you in the right direction.
