I am trying to perform various operations on MODIS datasets in google earth engine.
Every operation I try to perform is prevented by the requirement in code to select a band to work with.
This collection: MODIS/MCD43A4_006_NDVI' has no bands. It shows up in the console as
bands:  when I perform any operation that requires selecting or manipulating bands.
part of the code I've tried is this:
.filter(ee.Filter.calendarRange(startyear,endyear,'year')) .filter(ee.Filter.calendarRange(startmonth,endmonth,'month')) .sort('system:time_start') // .filterBounds(ROI) .select('NDVI');
I can't select NDVI, which I need later in the code, because I can't select anything with this dataset--there are no bands. I can't add a band, since the information is already there, NDVI and day of year, but apparently not stored in a band.
How can I use this dataset in operations that require selection of a band?
