 ===== Image Format ===== ===== Image Format =====
-MODIS data from NASA/USGS are distributed in the Hierarchical Data Format (HDF-EOS). This format can be reprojected or converted into other formats such as GeoTiff, but in the past HDF-EOS has been notoriously difficult to work with. Recent versions of ArcGIS (e.g., version 9.3) can read the HDF-EOS format. A listing of some other tools that can be used to view and convert HDF-EOS images can be found at [[https://​lpdaac.usgs.gov/lpdaac/tools]], but be cautioned that most of these tools are not easy to implement.+MODIS data from NASA/USGS are distributed in the Hierarchical Data Format (HDF-EOS).
