Acquiring Data

Sample File

Click for a full-resolution image

A sample (Collection 004) MOD05_L2 HDF file (20MB), a fully populated daytime granule, is available for download. This file was generated from MODIS data on January 26, 2004 and covers north-central Australia. The image (inset) was created from the L1B radiance data for the same granule (RGB=1:4:3) and is clickable to view a full-resolution version. The sample HDF data file can be used to familiarize yourself with the data format and/or as input to MODIS visualization and analysis software on your local platform.
