i.modis.qc Extracts Requested Quality Assessment flags from the following MODIS products: MOD09A1, MOD09Q1, and MOD11A2. This does include MOD09A1 QA_state_500m layer (see Notes).
MOD09A1/Q1: MODLAND QA Bits. bits=[0-1]
MOD09Q1: Cloud State. bits=[2-3] 
MOD09Q1: Band-wise Data Quality 250m bits=[4-7][8-11]
MOD09A1: Band-wise Data Quality 500m bits=[2-5][6-9][10-13][14-17][18-21][22-25][26-29]
MOD09A1/Q1: Atmospheric correction bit=[12]/[30]
MOD09A1/Q1: Adjacency correction bit=[13]/[31]
MOD09Q1: Different orbit from 500m product, bit=[14]
MOD11A2: Mandatory QA Flags bits=[0-1]
MOD11A1: Data Quality Flag bits=[2-3]
MOD11A1: Emis Error Flag bits=[4-5]
MOD11A1: LST Error Flag bits=[6-7]

MOD11A2: Mandatory QA Flags bits=[0-1]
MOD11A2: Data Quality Flag bits=[2-3]
MOD11A2: Emis Error Flag bits=[4-5]
MOD11A2: LST Error Flag bits=[6-7]
MOD09A1s: Cloud State bits=[0-1]
MOD09A1s: Cloud shadow bits=[2]
MOD09A1s: Land/Water Flag bits=[3-5]
MOD09A1s: Aerosol Quantity bits=[6-7]
MOD09A1s: Cirrus detected bits=[8-9]
MOD09A1s: Internal Cloud Algorithm Flag bits=[10]
MOD09A1s: Internal Fire Algorithm Flag bits=[11]
MOD09A1s: MOD35 snow/ice flag bits=[12]
MOD09A1s: Pixel adjacent to cloud bits=[13]
MOD09A1s: BRDF correction performed bits=[14]
MOD09A1s: Internal Snow Mask bits=[15]


In MOD09A1: It seems that cloud related info is not filled properly in the standard QC (MOD09A1 in this module) since version 3, State-QA 500m images (MOD09A1s in this module) should be used (see Vermote et al., 2008).
