ICESat-2 reference ground track GIS files

How can I determine where data will be collected by ICESat-2/ATLAS in the future? Are there GIS files available to the public that provide information regarding reference ground tracks and the ICESat-2/ATLAS coverage plan?

The ICESat-2/ATLAS technical specifications page found here https://icesat-2.gsfc.nasa.gov/science/specs
provides kmz and kml files with the nominal reference ground tracks and beam locations for the Western and Eastern hemispheres, as well as the polar regions. Time-specific, planned reference ground tracks (RGTs) are also available on this page.
