I am working with MODIS Aerosol data (the Level-2
AOD_550_Dark_Target_Deep_Blue_Combined product). I am retrieving the data using the LAADS DAAC data API, and requesting all swaths as
I know that level-2 products are not georectified to a common grid (as L3 products are), but I was wondering if I need to re-grid my
GeoTIFF files to extract data for some latitudes and longitudes.
My approach for extracting the data is quite simple, I am just using the
rasterstats Python library and querying the points I need from each file. Is this data going to be different from the same extraction from the re-gridded data of the same file? I am just wondering that the re-gridding needs interpolation. Hence, I will modify the data array and create some bias.
