I have downloaded the MODIS Monthly Fire Location Product from the University of Maryland ftp Server. All the files are in HDF format.

How do you make these into tiff's?

Both the HDF-EOS To GeoTIFF Conversion Tool (HEG) and the MODIS Reprojection Tool (MRT) can do that. You can download them from the USGS website: https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/tools/data_manipulation

  • Is the HDF-EOS To GeoTIFF Conversion Tool (HEG) part of ArcGIS?

  • The MODIS Reprojection Tool (MRT) has been retired in favour of HEG. See lpdaac.usgs.gov/news/…
