MODIS land mosaics - various products

Mosaiced and remapped data from the USGS LPDAAC for the Australian continent and Tasmania. Some products are also available for New Zealand.

Link to the data


These products are produced from the original tiles downloaded from USGS

The tiles are mosaiced and reprojected using the MODIS Reprojection Tool.

Mosaics are separated into individual bands for each product and reformatted from HDF-EOS to standard HDF4 with a consistent file, SDS and attribute naming scheme (see the documentation for details).
