r.in.modis for GRASS GIS
by Luca Delucchi for OSGeo - Open Source Geospatial Foundation
MODIS data are free geodata and they are crucial to derive ecological indicators. The two NASA satellite systems, Terra and Aqua, significantly improve the current data availability for scientific purposes. I am facing the challenge to develop a module which will be able to i)import data from a downloaded file or ii) directly download MODIS data from a FTP server and then load the file(s) in a GRASS GIS location.
