Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) Polar2grid Reprojection Software Version 1.0 Release
22 February 2013
First CSPP software release that enables Suomi NPP users to create:
The software uses standard CSPP or IDPS Science Data Records (SDRs) as input, and allows the user a selection of projections or grids to use for the remapping.
The default GeoTIFF projection is the WGS 84/Plate Carrée coordinate system. The execution takes place using simple bash shell scripts, with the user specifying a directory containing the SDR files, or the files themselves. If more than one contiguous granule is provided, it will create an aggregated image or grid.
- High Resolution VIIRS GeoTIFF files for all SDR bands, including the Day/Night Band, and
- Gridded VIIRS NetCDF-3 files for a selection of SDR bands suitable for display in the Advanced Weather Interactive Processing System (AWIPS I and II), the US National Weather Service (NWS) Visualization and Analysis Tool.
Software, execution scripts and documentation are included with the release.
