NOTE: The HDF-EOS2 link currently provides the source for the HDF4, JPEG, and ZLIB libraries in addition to the HDF-EOS2 library.
- Install dependent libraries. Many of these come standard with the Linux distribution.
- Set up environment variables. Can create an environment shell file or add the following to your bash shell. For C shell, use 'setenv VAR "directory"'. Note: If the HDF library was configured and built with szip support, then the user will also need to add an environment variable for SZIP include (SZIPINC) and library (SZIPLIB) files.

Define $PREFIX to point to the directory in which you want the executables, static data, etc. to be installed.
- Download the static land/water polygon from http://edclpdsftp.cr.usgs.gov/downloads/auxiliaries/land_water_poly/land_no_buf.ply.gz. Unzip the file into $PREFIX/static_data. Define the ESPA_LAND_MASS_POLYGON environment variable to point to the $PREFIX/static_data/land_no_buf.ply file in order to run the land/water mask code.
Install ESPA product formatter libraries and tools by downloading the source from Downloads above. Goto the src/raw_binary directory and build the source code there. ESPAINC and ESPALIB above refer to the include and lib directories created by building this source code using make followed by make install. The ESPA raw binary conversion tools will be located in the $PREFIX/bin directory.
Note: if the HDF library was configured and built with szip support, then the user will also need to add "-L$(SZIPLIB) -lsz" at the end of the library defines in the Makefiles. The user should also add "-I$(SZIPINC)" to the include directory defines in the Makefile.
Note: on some platforms, the JBIG library may be needed for the XML library support, if it isn't already installed. If so, then the JBIGLIB environment variable needs to point to the location of the JBIG library.
Linking these libraries for other applications
The following is an example of how to link these libraries into your source code. Depending on your needs, some of these libraries may not be needed for your application or other espa product formatter libraries may need to be added.

- Modified to support MODIS (verify support for MOD09GA).
- Added support for VIIRS VNP09GA surface reflectance products. Only the 500m image bands are ingested (SurfReflect_I1_1, SurfReflect_I2_1, SurfReflect_I3_1). NOTE: This update requires HDF5 and HDF-EOS5 for reading the VIIRS products.
- Expanded the K1 and K2 thermal constants to be written to the XML file with 4 decimal digits versus 2 decimal digits
