Welcome to the NTSG Images site. Here you will find images of selected data from our data warehouse. Currently we only have images of selected MODIS data, but we are always trying to add images of additional data products. The easiest way to use this site is through the browse menu. If you are looking for images with specific data, time, or regions in mind use the search page.
These images are not intended to be used as data products. The are intended to provide a quick first look and general idea of the data product. The data granules from which these images were generated are available on our ftp server: ftp://ftp.ntsg.umt.edu/pub/MODIS/Mirror/

Four Years of MOD17 Annual NPP(posted:
27 Feb 2004
All the images have been regenerated with the latest version of Enhanced NPP (NTSG in-house MOD17A3, collection 4.5, product version number 105 for those who are counting). There are four years of data and images: 2000-2003. It should be noted that since MOD15 data starts on year day 57 of 2000, the periods prior to this were calculated as the average of 2001-2003. If you are using MOD17A2 granules, please pay attention to the QC field, which will indicate that no FPar/Lai values were produced for the early 2000 periods.
The only algorithmic difference between this version of NTSG Enhanced MOD17 and the version distributed at AGU is that this one has tighter input QC tolerances.
The following is a table of global GPP and NPP for 2000 to 2003 produced by Maosheng Zhao.
2000 and 2001 were La Niņa years. 2002 and 2003 were weak El Niņo years.
