Welcome to pyModis¶
pyModis is a Free and Open Source Python based library to work with MODIS data.
It offers bulk-download for user selected time ranges, mosaicking of MODIS tiles,
and the reprojection from Sinusoidal to other projections, convert HDF format to
other formats and the extraction of data quality information.
pyModis library was developed to replace old bash scripts developed by Markus
Neteler to download MODIS data from NASA FTP server. It is very useful for
GIS and Remote Sensing Platform of Fondazione Edmund Mach to update
its large collection of MODIS data.
It has several features:
for downloading large numbers of MODIS HDF/XML files and for using it in a cron job for continuous automated updating; it supports both FTP and HTTP NASA repositories
parses the XML file to obtain information about the HDF files
creates the XML metadata file with the information of all tiles used for the mosaic
extracts specific information from bit-encoded MODIS quality assessment layers of different product types
Graphical User Interface for each script written in wxPython (pyModis >= 1.0)
it support Python 2 and Python 3 (pyModis >= 2.0)
