I am periodically monitoring https://nrt3.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/archive/allData/5200/VJ114IMG_NRT/Recent to detect new entries in near realtime. Since this directory can get quite large I was wondering if the API (which obviously does support queries as in "...?fields=all&formats=csv") allows to filter entries newer than a provided date/time or at least allows to set the fields for the response ("...?fields=name.." did not work). I can work around it on my end but was wondering if there is a way to reduce bandwidth / load on the LANCE server.
One option is that you use:
instead and monitor this folder for new files. DOY folders are updated at the same time as "Recent" folder.
Otherwise, you can use something like:
You can also explore LAADS API at:
"https://ladsweb.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov" in the example
AQUA_MODIS.20220724T165001.L2.OC.NRT.nc. These files are unusable with my octave and Matlab scripts. Was this changed an error?
The latest DOY dir works but it does not seem to support query parameters (e.g. fields or temporalRanges), only full directory listings. Is it supposed to handle queries?
Maybe I'm doing something wrong but the 'details' temporalRanges queries work only partially. For instance, using
I get the entries for 2022-212 but none for 2022-213. Am I correct in that day/time in the query refer to acquisition day/time?
