Abstract

This page provides quick-look images and basic metadata for all Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) acquisitions made by Geoscience Australia Earth Observation in the past seven days. Each swath is labelled by orbit number and date, and is divided into scenes or "Granules". Time of day is shown using Co-ordinated Universal Time (UTC) which is similar to Greenwich Mean Time. Australian Eastern Standard time is UTC plus 10 hours. Data for download is in a specialised format suitable for image analysis by professional users. If a simple image file (*.jpg) only is required, click on the magnifying glass, then right-click on the enlarged image and Save Picture As to save to your local drive. First enlargement is approx five kilometre pixels and the second enlargement is approx one kilometre pixels. Quick-look images derived from HDF datasets are cropped at 180°E - (The HDF datasets themselves are complete).
