modiscloud: R tools for processing Level 2 Cloud Mask products from MODIS

Package for processing downloaded MODIS Cloud Product HDF files and derived files. Specifically, MOD35_L2 cloud product files, and the associated MOD03 geolocation files (for MODIS-TERRA); and MYD35_L2 cloud product files, and the associated MYD03 geolocation files (for MODIS-AQUA). The package will be most effective if the user installs MRTSwath (MODIS Reprojection Tool for swath products;, and adds the directory with the MRTSwath executable to the default R PATH by editing ~/.Rprofile.
