[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The MODIS Swath-to-Grid Toolbox (MS2GT) is a set of software tools that can be used to read HDF-EOS files containing MODIS swath data and produce flat binary files containing gridded data in a variety of map projections. Multiple input files corresponding to successively acquired 5 minute MODIS "scenes" can be processed together to produce a seamless output grid. Supported map projections include:

Albers_Conic_Equal_Area
Azimuthal Equal-Area
Azimuthal Equal-Area (ellipsoid)
Cylindrical Equal-Area
Cylindrical Equal-Area (ellipsoid)
Cylindrical Equidistant
Interrupted Homolosine Equal-Area
Lambert Conic Conformal (ellipsoid)
Mercator
Mollweide
Orthographic
Polar Stereographic
Sinusoidal
