We are happy to report that our MODIStsp package for automatic preprocessing of MODIS time series has been recently approved for being included in the rOpenSci ecosystem of R packages for reproducible science! We wish to thank reviewers Leah Wasser and Jeffrey Hanson for providing really valuable insights during the onboarding review process. We think their contribution really helped in improving the package! Please also note that MODIStsp website was also migrated, and is now available at http://ropensci.


We are happy to report that a new version of MODIStsp (1.3.4) is on CRAN as of today ! The new version introduces a strongly improved GUI (thanks mainly to @lwasser comments in her review for MODIStsp onboarding on ropensci). The new GUI facilitates the selection of layers to be processed, and allows interactive selection of the processing spatial extent over a map (thanks to @timsalabim and @timelyportfolio for implementing some changes on mapview to allow this!
