  10. 10. MODIS Lacks A Convenient Field Usable Interface
  11. 11. MODIS  Data is only available in the form of single, gigantic (90M) files which are split by region. 
  12. 12. We set up a &quot;tile server&quot; and imported key files into this server.  We then use the Open Layers platform to display this data in a user-friendly manner which can be scrolled through, zoomed, etc.  SOLUTION
  13. 13. PROBLEM RESOLVED! We Now Have A Convenient User Interface  Which Accesses Near Real Time Earth Imagery.
