Download MODIS Data Products from the Land Processes (LP) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC). The LP DAAC was established as part of NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS) Data and Information System (EOSDIS) initiative to process, archive, and distribute land-related data collected by EOS sensors, thereby promoting the interdisciplinary study and understanding of the integrated Earth system.

Landsat 7 was launched successfully on April 15, 1999, and the EOS Terra satellite (formerly EOS AM-1) was launched on December 18, 1999. Terra carries two sensing systems for which the LP DAAC has data processing and/or distribution responsibilities. These are the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS). In addition, the MODIS sensor on the Aqua spacecraft acquires data delivered to the LP DAAC for storage and distribution. Numerous ASTER and MODIS data products are available from LP DAAC.
