ICARE programmers toolbox

ICARE developed a variety of tools to help users manipulate, analyze and visualize the data sets and formats available at ICARE. A few tools are provided by ICARE partners and distributed through this page. Feel free to use these tools. Please acknowledge the use of these tools in publications with a sentence such as “Software/tools provided by the ICARE Data and Services Center (http://www.icare.univ-lille1.fr)".
If you have any question, please contact our support team.

Average Tool: Statistics of a list of HDF4 files
Language/Sofware: Numpy, Python
Application type(s): Analysis
Related project(s): MSG, PARASOL
Description:
This tool computes the average of multiple products and additional statistical indicators, e.g. standard deviation, maximum and minimum per pixel. The input and output files are in HDF format.

Cookie-cutter: Extraction of geostationary SEVIRI data in coincidence with heliosynchronous satellites (in SEVIRI geometry)
Language/Sofware: C, C++, Fortran
Application type(s): Extraction
Related project(s): MSG
Description:
Cookie-cutter is a LMD/Icare project whose purpose is to emulate an heliosynchronous satellite with SEVIRI acquisitions. The user defines her heliosynchronous satellite by giving some orbital and swath parameters. The tool then builds an HDF file with SEVIRI data as if they had been viewed by this fictive satellite.

Filedata: High level C++ library for reading a lot of products hosted by ICARE
Language/Sofware: C++
Application type(s): Data Read/Write
Related project(s): CALIPSO, MODIS, PARASOL
Description:
This library provides interfaces for reading products hosted by ICARE, like MODIS, CALIPSO, PARASOL, CLOUDSAT, MERIS... It also provides high level interfaces to common file formats like HDF5 or HDF4

Fis2raw: A tool to convert the FIS format (from the SATMOS, at Lannion) into a simple, headerless, raw binary file
Language/Sofware: C
Application type(s): Data Conversion
Related project(s): MSG
Description:
The FIS format is a data format provided in particular by the SATMOS Archivage Center, at Lannion (MSG data at Lannion are archived this way). The program fis2raw converts the FIS format into a raw, headerless, binary file. The number of values and their type may be retrieved while performing the conversion.
