Description

The MODIS Global Subsetting and Visualization Tool provides on-demand, customized subsets of several MODIS Collection 6 land products. Subset products are made available to the user through an interactive web page. The user specifies the center point for the area of interest by entering geographic coordinates or selecting the location on a map. The user then selects the desired MODIS land product and specifies a rectangular area surrounding the center point by providing the number of kilometers "Above and Below" and "Left and Right" of the center point. In the final step, the user is given the option to receive spatial data for their order in MODIS sinusoidal or geographic (WGS84) projection and is asked to provide an email for order delivery. Subsets are made available to the user through an order visualization page with interactive time series plots, MODIS data quality information, land cover and phenology data, order and product citations, and download access for the data in tabular and spatial data formats.
