In VANE platform there are default color correction algorithms for particular satellite imagery sets. We are continuously working on improving these basic algorithms and now there is one more for MODIS daily imagery with atmospheric and gamma correction. Now the MODIS mosaic looks more smooth and seamless, especially at the edges of strips. 

So we are going to provide the best Base Map for weather overlays and, in addition, the closest to real time one.  The delay of imagery publication is going to be less than an hour after the satellite path through our efforts to reduce processing time costs.

While the new algorithm is going through the beta testing - you need to set up the additional parameter to use it:

color=modis

And the link to get the whole daily mosaic from the VANE platform will look like this
