Important Note: (Information updated on 22 May 2018) For data dates from launch through 31 Dec 2016, images in Worldview are generated from Collection 6.0 "Standard" MODIS data. (Standard" refers to the regular MODAPS processing stream). Starting on data date 1 Jan 2017 and forward, images are generated from Collection 6.1 "Standard" MODIS data. However for the leading edge in the forward stream (today's and yesterday's dates), images in Worldview were generated from Collection 6.1 Near Real Time (NRT) data, which could have a lower quality due to ancillary data files being unavailable or improperly timed. Users should be cautious when viewing images for the leading edge in the forward stream (today and yesterday's dates) as they were generated from NRT data and may not accurately reflect "standard" MODIS data products. For these leading edge data dates, the imagery in Worldview should be used as a proxy only. After 2 days, all leading edge Near Real Time images will be reprocessed with "Standard" Collection 6.1 data and replaced. So only the leading edge 2 days will depict lower quality NRT data. Users should also note that images in Worldview from launch through 31 Dec 2016 are generated from Collection 6.0 "Standard" MODIS data and will not reflect the latest generation Collection 6.1 algorithm.
