The LP DAAC archives MODIS data and offers ASTER data on an On-Demand basis.
Both MODIS and ASTER have several products associated with them, and we have
included links for your review. MODIS data is available in 250m, 500m, 1km,
and global resolutions and is available at no charge. ASTER bands 1-3 are at
a 15m resolution, bands 4-9 are at a 30m resolution, and bands 10-14 are at
a 90m resolution.

You may learn more about the products at the following links:

MODIS Products: https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/lpdaac/products/modis_product_table

ASTER Products: https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/lpdaac/products/aster_product_table

ASTER Pricing Policy: https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/lpdaac/products/aster_policies

All LP DAAC data holdings are available via the Warehouse Inventory Search
Tool (WIST). To search LP DAAC data sets, make sure that you select either
ASTER, MODIS/Terra or MODIS/Aqua located under the "Land" discipline. You
may then select a data set(s) and enter spatial and temporal parameters to
your search.

The WIST tool does have an online tutorial available to assist you with the
ordering process, and you may access WIST through the following link:

Due to contractual agreements between NASA and the Japanese owners of the
ASTER sensor, the Land Processes DAAC archives and distributes the following
ASTER products available to the general public at no-cost:

1) ASTER Global DEM (available to registered users through WIST):

for search, browse and order using Japan's WWW IMS web site. We have
collected and merged several of ERSDAC's tutorials into a lengthy, but
detailed guide to their web site which is available from the more
information link for ERSDAC on our Get Data tab at:


*The Land Processes DAAC does have an application process for Federal
Partners, NASA Affiliated Users, and Educational users for approved access
to ASTER data. If you feel that you may qualify under one of these
categories, please review additional details and submit an application here:

Humberto Yances,

Thank you for contacting us regarding Landsat imagery.
Landsat imagery held in the USGS archives can be searched on the following
pages (see below for detailed instructions on how to use these viewers):
·    Glovis http://glovis.usgs.gov
·    EarthExplorer http://earthexplorer.usgs.gov

Landsat imagery is downloadable at no cost.

Many scenes are ready for immediate download from the websites listed
above; requests can be placed for processing of scenes not downloadable,
using these same websites. Once requests are placed and imagery is
processed, an email notification is returned with the direct download
location. Processing generally takes 1-3 days.

Before downloading Landsat data, it is important to understand that a
number of files will be included, and how the individual band files work
together in image processing software to create a final RGB color image.
Please see these pages for more details:
·    Files provided with a Landsat scene -
·    Landsat spectral band designations -
·    Which spectral band to use -
·    The Landsat Processing Details page provides information on
parameters, correction levels and systems used during data processing -

There are no restrictions on Landsat data downloaded from USGS EROS, and it
can be used or redistributed as desired. However, a statement of the data
source when citing, copying, or reprinting USGS Landsat data or images is
requested. Details can be found on the EROS Data Citation page -

GloVis - http://glovis.usgs.gov. Begin by clicking anywhere on the map.
Along the left hand side of the viewer you will be able to enter your
location by path/row, latitude/longitude, or by selecting the location on
the map. If you would like to make the image larger on your screen click on
Resolution at the top of the screen and change it to 240m. You can also
browse through different image collections by clicking Collection at the
top of the screen and choosing from the list (please note that aerial
photography is now available through GloVis). Once you find the image you
would like to order/download, click the Add button on bottom left of the
screen and then Download.

EarthExplorer - http://earthexplorer.usgs.gov. With this site you can view
our Landsat archives in their entirety. Notice the 3 tabs at the top of the
screen - Search Criteria, Data Sets, Additional Criteria, and Results.
Begin by entering your area of interest either by address/place, path/row,
or coordinates and enter a date range. Next, click Data Sets to see a list
of available products. Click the plus sign next to the product you are
interested in and put a check mark in the box next to the one you would
like to search for. Next, click the Additional Search Criteria tab if you
would like to narrow your results. Finally, click Results. Your results
will be displayed on the left side of the screen. Notice the buttons next
to each result - with these you can view a footprint of the area on the map
to the right, view a browse overlay on the map, view the metadata, download
the data, or exclude the data from your search results. Please note - you
will need to register on Earth Explorer before being able to download any

Bulk Data Distribution -
http://edcsns17.cr.usgs.gov/NewEarthExplorer/order/bulkdownload/ This
utility is very useful if you have a large number of images you wish to
download (you will need to have a list of entity id's ready).

Imagery not found in the USGS archive may have been collected by the USGS
International Cooperator (IC) ground stations. Each station is the primary
source of distributing data collected at their location. Details on the IC
network can be found at http://landsat.usgs.gov/about_ground_stations.php.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We will forward this email to the LPDAAC group that works with ASTER and

A group of scientist and mappers in Colombia want to use some of the
satelital imagery at glovis.com, with the porpouse of scientiphic studies
to attend emergencies during floods disasters.

Please let me know if we can use ALTER, MODIS, Lansat and other sources for
this purpose.
