Do we need to perform level 3 binning for every file? I am just doing like level 2 binning and bl3 map to make mapped version of that file. And I am using default flags. I processed almost 3 years data. Is it necessary to perform the level 3 binning?
l2bin takes L2 files and creates a L3 file
l3bin takes L3 files and creates another L3 file.
Generally, one would bin the L2 files for a given day using l2bin,
then create longer time period bins (8-day, monthly, seasonal, etc.)
from the daily L3 files. However, if given all the L2 files for the
time period of interest, l2bin will create an identical file to l3bin
following the above convention.
