Canadian BEACONs Project, University of Alberta. The GPP dataset was developed from MODIS GPP/NPP (MOD17) 1-km2 resolution satellite imagery (Zhao et al. 2005, 2006, Zhao and Running 2010; Figure B2). MODIS GPP has an 8-day temporal resolution and is ideal for monitoring spatial patterns in photosynthetic activity (Heinsch et al. 2003). The current GPP data represents the mean of 14 years of data, measured from 2000 to 2014.
