Hi. I am trying to change the land cover using MODIS land cover data. Previously, I was able to do this without any problem but right now I am experiencin the same problem again even if I do what I previously did. Here are things I did.

1.. I downloaded the landcover data (see uploaded 2015modis.tar.xz) then transformed it into a binary file with its corresponding index.

[/code]

2. I added a new entry in my geogrid.tbl

/

3. I added this to my namelist.input

But looking at LU_INDEX I get,

Why does it only show one value? Thanks for the answer

2. I added a new entry in my geogrid.tbl

3. I added this to my namelist.input

But looking at LU_INDEX I get,

min max both 17 for LU_INDEX

Why does it only show one value? Thanks for the answer
