Bit Mapper: Extracting and Visualizing Bit Flags from Byte Data
Entry ID: Bit_Mapper


Summary
Abstract: This IDL program extracts bit flags from byte data arrays, and then plots them on a geolocated map with a user-defined color scheme. The specific codes are designed to extract MOD06 L2 QA bit flags and Cloud Mask (MOD06 or MOD35) bit flags, but can be modified to extract and visualize other bit flags. The program is separated into two codes, one which performs the extraction and one that ... View entire text
