The LP DAAC will shut off anonymous FTP download capability for ASTER and MODIS on June 4, 2013. After this date, LP DAAC users will be required to use HTTP to download ASTER and MODIS data.
The HTTP updates are designed to increase performance and improve security during data retrieval. Users of LP DAAC data should update any automated scripts for LP DAAC data retrieval. We highly recommend users begin using HTTP as soon as possible to ensure data delivery.
Please contact LP DAAC User Services with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
