I have installed pyMODIS along with Numpy and the necassary GDAL bindings.

How do I go about running the scripts such as modis_convert.py and modis_download_from_list.py.

Are these ran from the command prompt?

I have also attempted to run them from the Python IDLE but have got Syntax errors.


modis_convert.py and modis_download_from_list.py. are Python scripts therefore in the command prompt, type

python modis_convert.py 

With the adequate parameters.

If you want to use PyModis from the command prompt or IDLE, you need to import the module

from pymodis import downmodis


The examples are in the Jupyter/Ipython notebook (/.../pyModis-2.0.2/docs/source/examples/pyModis.ipynb
