modis land global browse title image


The MODIS Land Science Team has developed coarse 5km versions of selected products to enable synoptic quality assessment via the internet. The coarse spatial resolution products are projected into a global coordinate system defined with pixel sizes corresponding to 20km in the Hammer-Aitoff projection (except for the Sea Ice products that have 14.15km pixels defined in the Lambert Azimuthal projection). These global browse images are generated with fixed contrast stretching and color look-up tables to enable consistent temporal comparison. This web interface has been developed to support interactive selection of browse products and zooming and panning at 5km resolution. The global browse images available on this web site should not be used for scientific analyses. Full spatial resolution golden tile browse images are also available at select locations.

Note: Global browse images are not available for all MODIS Land products or all collections, please click here for the current browse availability information.

C5 Sea_Ice: Image of "Ice Surface Temperature" will be displayed in place of Sea_Ice for night time since Sea_Ice is not retrieved for night time granules.
