Is there any way to search through the ASTER L2 databases (e.g., AST_05, AST_07) using GPS coordinates instead of browsing the granule library made available in Earthdata?
For example, AG100 has its granules file name labelled where it embeds the Northwest corner GPS coordinates for its images (i.e., AG100.v003.-01.-035.0001.h5 has -01.-035 for GPS coordinates). Does something similar exist for AST_05 or AST_07 files? Or is the GIS software the only reliable way of searching for this information? I understand that the metadata for the granules has border box coordinates, but this involves extracting/downloading the 4 million plus metadata files to extract this information (which isn't very efficient).
