We introduce a precise, efficient, and flexible spatial prescreening technique developed to support Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) data subsetting in response to the requests of Aerosol Robotic Network researchers. The technique is capable of handling all MODIS data granules uniformly regardless of their locations on the Earth, with no special treatment required for dateline and pole crossing regions. It is easily adaptable to other problems where spatial prescreening is desired.
