Terra Product Descriptions: MOD13A4N

Last update: February 9 2015

Data Set Short Name:
MOD13A4N

Data Set Long Name:
MODIS/Terra Vegetation Indices Daily Rolling-8-Day L3 Global 500m SIN Grid

Platform:
Terra

Instrument:
MODIS

Product Description:
The MODIS Near Real Time (NRT) level-3 Vegetation Indices Daily Rolling-8-Day data MOD13A4N, are provided everyday at 500-meter spatial resolution as a gridded level-3 product in the Sinusoidal projection. Vegetation indices are used for global monitoring of vegetation conditions and are used in products displaying land cover and land cover changes. These data may be used as input for modeling global biogeochemical and hydrologic processes and global and regional climate. These data also may be used for characterizing land surface biophysical properties and processes including primary production and land cover conversion.

Note: This is a near real-time product only. Standard historical data and imagery for MOD13Q4N (250m) and MOD13A4N (500m) are not available. Users can either use the NDVI standard products from LAADS web (https://ladsweb.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/search/) or access the science quality MxD09[A1/Q1] data and create the NDVI product of their own.
