MOD44W.005 Land Water Mask Derived from MODIS and SRTM (MODIS/MOD44W/MOD44W_005_2000_02_24)

Version V005

The Global Water Mask uses the SWBD (SRTM Water Body Data) in combination with MODIS 250m data to create a complete global map of surface water at 250m spatial resolution, circa 2000-2002. This dataset is intended for use in processing of raster data and for masking out water in final raster data products.
