Capabilities of the MODAPS Web Services subsetter available to the Simple Subsetting Wizard
The MODAPS Web Services (MWS) Subsetter is capable of subsetting MODIS LAADS (Level 1 and Atmosphere Archive and Distribution System) data files spatially and/or by variables.
Spatial subsetting will be performed only if a Spatial Bounding Box was specified in the search criteria.
Variable subsetting will be performed only if one or more variables are selected, but if all variables are selected, then effectively no variable subsetting will be performed.
When you Subset Selected Data Sets, once the subset request is completed for a selected data set, an order for the subsetted files of that data set is submitted. If you view the subset results, you can obtain an ID and instructions for your order, and contact information that you can use to inquire about your order in the event of any delays or unexpected difficulties. When your order is ready to be downloaded, a message will be sent to the e-mail address that you provided.
