MOD 03 - Geolocation Data Set

Description:
The MODIS Geolocation product contains geodetic coordinates, ground elevation, and solar and satellite zenith, and azimuth angle for each MODIS 1-km sample. These data are provided as a �companion� data set to the Level 1B calibrated radiances and the Level 2 data sets to enable further processing. These geolocation fields are determined using the spacecraft attitude and orbit, instrument telemetry, and a digital elevation model.
