Summary
Abstract: Version 4 of the MYDMGGAD data product has been decommissioned.

The MODIS Global Geolocation Angle files (MYDMGGAD) contain information on solar illumination and instrument viewing geometry angles. These data can be used to model the geometric relationship and distance between the area of the Earth's surface imaged, the sun, and the sensor. This is often required to perform atmospheric ...
