MODIS/Terra L2G Daytime Pointers, Daily 250m V003Entry ID: MODPTQKM3
Abstract: Decommissioned product.
The MODIS Level-2G (L2G) land data storage methodology was developed to satisfy diverse needs of the MODIS land product generation algorithms. These include: enabling efficient processing and re-processing of MODIS land products, facilitating the development of terrestrial remote sensing algorithms and science using MODIS land data, and providing end-users with the ... original sensed MODIS observations and their sub-pixel geolocation information.
The L2G data storage structure stores information pertaining to the Level-2 (L2) observations that fall within each Level-3 (L3) grid cell over a 24-hour (GMT) period. The measured L2 geophysical parameter and the sensing geometry information are stored for each observation. The multiple observations stored in the L2G structure are examined by the L3 processes to extract only the most relevant observations falling over each grid cell.
