Abstract:
eMODIS products respond to specific land remote sensing community need for the benefits of MODIS data without the standard NASA packaging. eMODIS offers regionally based NDVI products in near-real time and historically using GeoTIFF format, non-sinusoidal map projections, and variable compositing periods. eMODIS currently (2011) produces NDVI over the continental U.S., Alaska, Central America/Caribbean, Africa and Madagascar, and Central Asia. Additional geographic and geophysical options are planned based on user requirements.
