The MODIS fixed sites subsetting tool provides customized subsets and visualizations of several MODIS Collection 5 land products for more than 1,100+ selected field and flux tower sites around the world. Spatial subsets of the land products are available for predefined 7 X 7-km areas centered on the selected sites. The search tool enables users to select a site, a land product, define the temporal range of interest, and either download the data or select from several data visualization options. The site-specific land product data can be downloaded in both comma separated value (*.csv) and GeoTIFF (.tif) format via the MODIS fixed sites subsetting tool. The data are in sinusoidal projection.
