Where can I get MODIS “point” data - NASA AppEEARS

The NASA Application for Extracting and Exploring Analysis Ready Samples (AppEEARS) site allows users to access MODIS and Landsat data for selected point locations without the need to actually download these raster datasets.  You can manually enter one or more point locations or upload a file of sites for analysis.  On the site you can generate charts and graphs of these data individually or in combination, over various time-scales.  After exploring the data you can easily download the data for your location(s) as a CSV file.

There are a large number of MODIS and Web Enabled Landsat Data (WELD) products on the site.  Users are encouraged to view this USGS YouTube video to learn more about what the site can do, and how to use it.  You can also click on the Help link of the AppEEARS page for a short demo of what the site can do and how to use this.
