Dear All,
This is my twelfth report of GSoC: I am working on bringing pyModis to the
web through ZOO-Project.

*Brief description of the idea:* The pyModis project has been developed and
used to work with MODIS data, it provides wxPython user interfaces which
are able to download and process data using pyModis scripts. pyModis
depends on a desktop graphical user interface which does not make it
directly usable from a web application. The idea of this GSoC proposal is
to bring pyModis to the web by publishing Python Web Processing Services
using the ZOO-Project technology accessible through a minimal web

*The state of the project as it was BEFORE your GSoC:* Currently pyModis is
able to run on a local computer but cannot be directly remotely invoked on-
demand. ZOO-Project is able to handle services implemented in the Python
language but do not offer any pyModis capabilities.

*The addition that your project brought to the software: *By providing
pyModis as a service through ZOO-Project, capabilities of ZOO-Project will
be increased, specially capabilities of python in ZOO-Project will be
exposed. As a sample web service from this, we develop a web service to
download, mosaic and convert modis data from NASA's Land Processes
Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC)
(http://e4ftl01.cr.usgs.gov/). Then,
it could be useful to whoever that want to download data, mosaic images and
convert modis data from image to another image file without GIS and Remote
Sensing knowledge.

Link to the web application: https://github.com/chingchai/pyModis/tree/gsoc-

*Note: *I am still doing some bug fixing and update the documentation for
the zoo-pymodis and it will be finished in this week.

Best regards,

Chingchai Humhong
