Create an "Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD)" PLOT with a MISR L3 product

The MIL3YAE is the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) Level 3 Component Global Aerosol Product covering a year version 4 data product. It contains a statistical summary of column aerosol 555-nanometer optical depth and a monthly aerosol compositional type frequency histogram. This data product is a global summary of relevant Level 2 aerosol parameters averaged over a year and reported on a geographic grid, with a resolution of 0.5 degrees by 0.5 degrees.

This script will allow the user to view aerosol optical depth through different channels within each dimension such as Optical Depth Range, MISR camera band, and Particle type.
