Although the Map & Data Library is physically closed, we are still available remotely and happy to help. We can conduct consultations using online teleconferencing software. Please feel free to contact us at or use our help form. We have a number of tutorials available, are still supplying software licenses, and have compiled a list of resources for working with COVID-19 data.

Please note that our computer lab is also accessible for use through remote access. See this link for more information.

COVID-19: Updates on library services and operations

Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS)

MODIS is an instrument aboard the Terra and Aqua satellites. Both satellites view the entire Earth's surface every 1 to 2 days acquiring data in 36 spectral bands at three spatial resolutions (250m, 500m, and 1,000m) describing features of the land, oceans and the atmosphere. The majority of the data are available for download at no cost. See a list of data products.
