A simple data assimilation method for improving estimation of moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) leaf area index (LAI) time-series data products based on the gradient inverse weighted filter and object analysis is proposed. The properties and quality control (QC) of MODIS LAI data products are introduced. Also, the gradient inverse weighted filter and object analysis are analyzed. An experiment based on the simple data assimilation method is performed using MODIS LAI data sets from 2000 to 2005 of Guizhou Province in China.
