MODIS data users will need certain sotware packages and tools to get full use out of the MODIS data. Many tools are available to help handle and manipulate the data files. At the Goddard Earth Sciences Distributed Active Archive Center (GES DAAC), the MODIS Data Support Team (MDST) has devoted much time to researching, testing, and enhancing a variety of software packages designed to handle the HDF-EOS data format (the MODIS standard image format). The following is a list of software packages and tools we deem most useful. Most of this software is freely available and can be downloaded via the Web. The MDST will continue to research and test new software packages and tools as they become available, and update this page accordingly.
