Acquiring Data

Collection 051 Sample File


A sample (Collection 051) MOD06_L2 HDF file, a fully populated daytime granule, is available for download. The image (inset) was created from the L1B radiance data for the same granule (RGB=1:4:3) 1 April 2010 (2010 091) at 0950 UTC. The sample HDF data file can be used to familiarize yourself with the data format and used as input to visualization and analysis software on your local platform.

Ordering Data

All MODIS Atmosphere data products are available to the public (at no charge) through the Level 1 and Atmosphere Archive and Distribution System (LAADS).

This new and user-friendly MODIS data ordering system gives the user convenient means to simultaneously order several MODIS Data Sets, including Geolocation. This system also works well for single products.
