I hope to be working with MODIS data, mostly the V6 250m reflectance files (e.g., MOD09GQ). The naming convention of these files makes it easy to identify which .hdf covers my area of interest (i.e., MOD09GQ.A2016341.h18v04.006.2016343073521, where h18v04 is the corresponding tile location).
I will need to supplement the reflectance data with other datasets, such as the cloud cover product MOD35_L2. The naming convention for these .hdf files do not include the tile location, but instead a 24hour data start time (i.e., MOD035_l2.A2016341.1125.006.2016341174916, where 1125 is the data capture time).
How do I know which supplimentary .hdf file to download, that corresponds to the location of my gridded data?
My guess is that the gridded reflectance products metadata indicate a capture time for each corner. Does this metadata time correlate with the associated supplementary MODIS products?
Will I therefore need to repeat the process for the other three corners as well, to cover the whole area?
Is there an easier way to identify which suplolimentary .hdr files I need?
