Single-band outputs

Output raster files are saved in specific subfolders of the main output folder. In particular, a separate subfolder is created for each processed original MODIS layer, Quality Indicator or Spectral Index. Each subfolder contains one image for each processed date, created according to the following naming conventions:

"ProdCode"_"Layer"_"YYYY"_"DOY"."ext"

(e.g.,MOD13Q1_NDVI_2000_065.dat)

, where:

  • ProdCode is the code name of the MODIS product from which the image was derived (e.g., MOD13Q1);
  • Layer is a short name describing the dataset (e.g., b1_Red, NDII, UI);
  • YYYY and DOY correspond to the year and DOY (Day of the Year) of acquisition of the original MODIS image;
  • ext is the file extension (.tif for GTiff outputs, or .dat for ENVI outputs).

Virtual multi-band outputs

ENVI and/or GDAL virtual time series files and RasterStack RData objects are instead stored in the “Time_Series” subfolder if required.

Naming convention for these files is as follow:

"ProdCode"_"Layer"_"StartDOY"_"StartYear_"EndDOY"_"EndYear_"suffix".ext" 

(e.g., MOD13Q1_NDVI_49_2000_17_2015_RData.dat)

, where:

  • ProdCode is the code name of the MODIS product from which the image was derived (e.g., MOD13Q1);
  • Layer is a short name describing the dataset (e.g., b1_Red, NDII, UI);
  • StartDOY, StartYear, EndDOY and EndYear indicate the temporal extent of the time serie created;
  • suffix indicates the type of virtual file (ENVI, GDAL or RData);
  • ext is the file extension (“.vrt” for gdal virtual files, “META” for ENVI meta files or “Rdata” for R raster stacks).
