Summary

Calxtract is an application that extracts some variables issued of different sensors (CALIOP, IIR, MODIS, PARASOL, CLOUDSAT, and more in the future) with pixels in coincidence with the CALIOP measurements either at 333m or 5km horizontal resolution.
The products issued of this application are named "caltrack" files.
