I am currently trying to reproject a large number (~14.000) of .hdf - files from MODIS Aqua/Terra from MODIS sinusoidal to something more popular (e.g. WGS1984). The files can be obtained from LAADS. The specific product I am interested in is "MOD04_3K - MODIS/Terra Aerosol 5-Min L2 Swath 3km" from Terra and " MYD04_3K - MODIS/Aqua Aerosol 5-Min L2 Swath 3km" from Aqua.

So far, I have tried the following:

I also tried to manually batch process the files using an online tutorial, which left my with an empty output folder. I also tried the R packages MODIStsp, which does not seem to support the specific product I need.

Two example files can be found here: CLICK

Does anyone have experience with that specific product or other ways to batch reproject .hdf-files?

Turns out there are some files missing when installing HEG 2.14 that have to be added manually via a patch that can be downloaded here.
