How to Use DIAS
To use DIAS, the following two terms (policy) apply to all users.
Please ensure you check all details.
Procedure for use of DIAS (Account Application)
DIAS accounts are broadly classified into three kinds.
1. DIAS account
These accounts are for the use of Web-based applications such as the DIAS Download System, the DIAS Metadata Management System, the CMIP5 Data Analysis System, etc. They use a common authentication infrastructure and enable a single sign-on. In order to apply for an account, please fill out the required fields of the application form below and submit it.
Data sets subject to the DIAS data policy alone can be downloaded via an account acquired by this application. Certification procedures can vary for data sets that require the approval of the data provider, but work is currently underway to allow users who do not have access rights and require the download of such data to move forward with application procedures for applications that can be made over by the Web.
Please inquire to the service reception desk or the DIAS office concerning web applications that require approval for use.
2. DIAS analysis environment account
The DIAS analysis environment is a virtual machine that enables data analysis and application development by directly accessing data sets provided by DIAS. Currently, it is only available for joint research proposals. Please refer to this page (written in Japanese) for more information on it.
3. Individual management accounts
Account management is carried out for each application for the Data Upload System, 3D Data Visual Analysis Tool, and the like because they are not for the general public and have limited users; they are undergoing trial operation; and the common account system for Web applications currently has insufficient authentication functionality. Please inquire to the service reception desk or the DIAS office concerning accounts.
