MODIS is an instrument carried aboard
both the Terra and Aqua satellites. Between these two satellites, MODIS
data are acquired for the entire Earth's surface every 1 to 2 days.
MODIS collects data in 36 spectral bands that vary in spatial resolution
from 250 to 1000 meters. We currently only collect data from the Terra
satellite and this data is limited to two 250-meter spectral bands (red
and near infrared) and two vegetation indices (NDVI and EVI). MODIS
data are ideally suited to regional and global applications. KansasView
