MODIStsp: a new "R" package for MODIS Land Products preprocessing

In this post, we are introducing MODIStsp a new “R” package allowing to automatize the creation of time series of rasters derived from Land Products data derived from MODIS satellite data (; www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0098300416303107).
