Changing Autumnal Landscape as Seen by Aqua MODIS

Autumn has arrived in the U.S. Upper Midwest. As seen in this Aqua/MODIS true color surface reflectance image, its arrival brings noticeable changes to the landscape due to senescence as farm fields dry out and are harvested and as leaves change color and fall off trees.

MODIS Data Products

NASA produces data products from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) sensor aboard NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites. MODIS land data products are available from NASA's Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC).


NASA's data policy ensures that all NASA data are available fully, openly, and without restrictions. Here's what this means to you.

Webinar: Mapping Global Urbanization from Landsat Data and High-Resolution Reference Data

Event Date: November 14, 2018

Urbanization is an important driver of change across our home planet. Join us to learn about NASA SEDAC data products that provide estimates of global impervious cover and urban extent at a common 30m spatial resolution.

EOSDIS DAACs Work Collaboratively to Improve Access to EOSDIS Data

The effort by multiple DAACs to develop the Earthdata Drive application is another example of how EOSDIS DAACs collaboratively create enterprise-wide solutions to improve the data user experience.

Terra: The Hardest Working Satellite in Earth Orbit

Since 1999, NASA’s Terra Earth observing satellite has completed more than 100,000 orbits. The instrument data from this workhorse satellite has resulted in one of the longest continuous data records of our planet ever recorded from space.

Previous Versions of Worldview Just Can't "Compare"
