The Geometry Vdata contained in the Path-P gridded products describes the parameters used by a set of the projection and gridding software developed at NSIDC for generating the Equal Area SSM/I Earth (EASE) Grid. These attributes are stored in the Path-P files as part of the processing history and are not required to access or use the scientific data sets.
