Summary
Abstract: The MODIS Global Geolocation Angle (MODGGA) files 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 corrections, or
