Two functions for Antarctic Mapping Tools: modismoa plots a MODIS Mosaic of Antarctica image using Matlab's Mapping Toolbox and modismoaps does the same thing but does NOT require any special toolbox licenses.

A nice toolboox to pick up the satllite images of the Antarctica. However, the URL to get the data seems have been removed away, leading to a fail to download the data by using the Script or manually operation. Could you provide an available URL to get the data and update the script of the modismoa_install? Thank you very much!

I downloaded the data you provided in Functions section and ran modismoa_install once more. Although after download of 2009 data I got an error (Error using fread. Invalid file identifier. Use fopen to generate a valid file identifier.) in string moa750_r1_hp1=fread(fid,[8056,6964],'uint16'), I guess it is fine for me since I don't need more than 2009 data...
