getMODIS_names obtains names of available MODIS products from USGS Earth Explorer. They can optionally be used with the getMODIS_query function for querying a specific MODIS product instead of all.

getMODIS_names(username = NULL, password = NULL)

Arguments

username

character, a valid user name to the USGS EROS Registration System (ERS). If NULL (default), the session-wide login credentials are used (see login_USGS for details on registration).

password

character, the password to the specified user account. If NULL (default) and no seesion-wide password is defined, it is asked interactively ((see login_USGS for details on registration).

Value

A character vector
