Summary
Abstract: The MODIS Rapid Response system has been developed to provide rapid access to
MODIS data globally, with initial emphasis on 250m color composite imagery and
active fire data. Imagery and data are now being provided to a number of users
such as the USFS Remote Sensing Applications Center (RSAC), the National
Interagency Fire Center (NIFC), the U.N. Global Fire Monitoring Center, and
NASA's Earth Observatory.

This research and development system is a contribution to the rapid
prototyping of NASA's Applications data and information systems, providing data
and information in support of decision making. The system builds on the
experience gained with the MODIS Land 250m production and distribution system.
The data delivery system is also being developed as a contribution to the
implementation of the international Global Observation of Forest Cover/Global
Observation of Landcover Dynamics (GOFC-GOLD).
