MEaSUREs MODIS Mosaic of Greenland (MOG) 2005, 2010, and 2015 Image Maps, Version 2

This data set, part of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, consists of two digital Greenland image maps each for the 2005, 2010, and 2015 measurement periods: the MOG Surface Morphology Image Map and the MOG Grain Size Image Map. The image maps are constructed from MODIS imagery acquired during 2005, 2010, and 2015 and provide nearly cloud-free views of all land areas and islands larger than a few hundred meters, including the ice caps on Baffin Island, Devon Island, Axel Heiberg Island, and Ellesmere Island.

This is the most recent version of these data.

Version Summary: 

Version 2 includes Mosaic of Greenland 2010 and 2015 (MOG2010 and MOG2015) data, in addition to the MOG2005 data.

How do I convert a GeoTIFF into a NetCDF file?
We recommend using the Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL) to convert GeoTIFF files into a different format. If you want to reproject to lat/lon as well, then we recommend reprojecting before converting to NetCDF (see the FAQ "How do I reproject a GeoTIFF to from polar steroegraphic to... read more

FAQ

Do you have sample code to read GeoTiffs?
The answer is yes. Below the image in this article, you will find  sample code in IDL, MATLAB, and Python to read in a GeoTIFF file, extract the metadata, and create an image. The code has been tested with data from: MEaSUREs Greenland Ice Sheet Velocity Mosaics SAR and Landsat, Version 1 (NSIDC-... read more
