GlobeToGran: Locating Level-2 Granules from a Generic Global Map
Entry ID: GlobeToGran

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This IDL tool locates level-2 granules that contain data that
lie within a user specified lat/lon rectangle, where the center
point is selected from a generic map of the world. The user
clicks on a map of the world to select a lat/lon point and then
specifies a latitude and longitude epsilon (to define the
rectangle size). The program then locates all granules (located
in user specified directories) that contain any pixels that lie
within the specified rectangle.
