MOD44W.006 Terra Land Water Mask Derived from MODIS and SRTM Yearly Global 250m (MODIS/006/MOD44W)

Version V006

The MOD44W V6 land/water mask 250m product is derived using a
decision tree classifier trained with MODIS data and validated with the
MOD44W V5 product. A series of masks are applied to address known issues
caused by terrain shadow, burn scars, cloudiness, or ice cover in oceans.
