MODIS GUI

Summary
Abstract: (Summary adapted from
"http://picasso.oce.orst.edu/ORSOO/MODIS/GUIhelp/what.html".)

The MODIS GUI was designed to ease plotting and manipulation of
MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) data using
Matlab. Numerous IDL-based programs already exist, such as
NOeSYS, SeaDAS and ENVI. The objective of the MODIS GUI was to
create similar capabilities using a GUI based on Matlab. This
would allow scientists that are more familiar with Matlab than
IDL to manipulate the data more easily.

The code and documentation are copyright by Jasmine
S. Nahorniak, Oregon State University. The code is freely
available for scientific use without software support.

The main features of the MODIS GUI include:

import level 2 and 3 MODIS HDF files (data, flags, and quality)
import subregions of MODIS data
choose the range of values to be plotted
map the data
zoom in or out
change figure colors/projections/labels
mask data
make histograms
make 2D plots
save data
save figures

In addition, data may be edited in the workspace and loaded into
the GUI for mapping. There is no batch processing capability at
this time.

Description: 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.
