Ordering Data

The Level-1 and Atmosphere Archive & Distribution System (LAADS) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC), located in the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, is one of twelve NASA EOSDIS DAACs, whose discipline domain is atmospheric science. The LAADS DAAC serves the global NASA Terra and Aqua Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), as well as other instruments. It should be noted that LAADS web site searches are limited to 2000 files; so you may need to limit the time period or spatial coordinates to complete a search successfully. If you don't want to limit either field, you can go directly to the LAADS FTP site (also linked below) to download data.

Instructions on the FTP site: After you load the FTP page -- click on directory "6" for Collection 6 (006) data -- click on directory "61" for Collection 6.1 (061) data. The FTP directories that start with "MOD" are for Terra MODIS HDF data; the directories that start with "MYD" are for Aqua MODIS HDF data. The FTP directories that start with "MOB" or "MYB" contain Terra or Aqua browse images. For older archived Collections (004, 005, 051), a golden month of September 2002 (2002 244) was retained.

For all questions and/or problems related to ordering MODIS data from LAADS, email MODAPS User Support at or call 1-800-596-8132 (toll-free US).
