Colorado Maximum Snow Extent, 24-31 May 2004

The following image was derived from the Maximum Snow Extent field of the MODIS/Terra Snow Cover 8-Day L3 Global 500m Grid, Version 4 data set, available from NSIDC.

Four input MOD10A2 tiles in HDF-EOS format were reprojected to a Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) Zone 13 projection and converted to GeoTIFF format using the freeware HDF-EOS to GeoTIFF (HEG) converter tool. ArcMap software was used to mosaic the four resulting GeoTIFF files, overlay county boundaries and cities, and create a map.

The following files are the source files used to create this image:
