Remap: A reprojection tool of geolocated data between various grids
Language/Sofware: C, C++
Application type(s): Reprojection
Related project(s): CALIPSO, MODIS, MSG
Description:
Remap is a tool designed to reproject geolocated data (i.e. data with at least known latitudes, longitudes, and expectedly, time).
The tool can read various products and reprojects one (or several ones) into another, using a nearest pixel search.
This tool is SID (still in development) but may be used as is for the supported products (each version documents its supported products).
At this time, CALIPSO IIR, SEVIRI, MODIS and PARASOL are supported.

SSMIS tools: Useful Python software for reading SSMI binary files.
Language/Sofware: Numpy, Python
Application type(s): Data Conversion, Data Read/Write
Related project(s):
Description:
This tool is a reading Python software for SSMI binary files consisting in some headers followed by records with the same pattern (Headers and record patterns are described in text files: ./conf/).
Datasets are returned as Numpy arrays and write in HDF4 file.

Xrit2raw: A tool to convert XRIT/SEVIRI data into a simple, headerless, raw binary file (along with libxrit, the library xrit2raw is based upon)
Language/Sofware: C
Application type(s): Data Conversion
Related project(s): MSG
Description:
xrit2raw is a simple tool designed above the libxrit library, in order to convert the XRIT format into a raw format, for people who don't want to bother themselves with programming. The output will be a simple, headerless binary file, with 3712x3712 values of radiances for the low resolution channels, or with 11136x11136 values for the high resolution channel HRV (in native 16-bit integer, or scaled simple or double precision floating point values, depending on the options set by the user).
