MODIS Subsets

Image subsets are created for specific areas of the globe. These images are available as true color composites as well as other band visualizations and ratios which illustrate different characteristics. Historically, MODIS subset images have been customized for specific project applications or at the request of end users. Subset images can be downloaded as GeoTIFFs, JPEGs or KMZ files.
