Pixel Raster Space on MODIS Aqua and Sentinel 2/3 for Coordinates

by alvarofloresr » Thu Mar 16, 2023 5:29 am America/New_York

Hello!

I was reading OpenGeoSpatial documentation about the Pixel Raster Space(http://docs.opengeospatial.org/is/19-008r4/19-008r4.html#_pixelisarea_raster_space)

I'm working with MODIS AQUA and Sentinel 2/3 (not sure if that is something I can ask here) and was wondering where is the given coordinate grid located:

1) At the center of the pixel
2) At the top-left corner of the pixel

Not sure if this is referenced somewhere for other sensors too

Thanks!

Hello, if you are using our products, our data are grid registered and the lat/lon values are the center of the pixel.
