Re: Confused about data types



Just to add, having had HD constipation, when I added HVS-1 to BS, I agree with David.
You really need to limit the data you receive.
Both in the data you have ticked in your EUMETCast account, and via your cast-client-channels_hvs-1.ini and cast-client-channels_bas.ini.

Gone are the days when you could receive 'everything' disseminated by EUMETCast.

I think I'm right in saying that some 'wanted data streams' also include data that you do not want - 'DARMSTADT sounding data' for instance in my case, which filled my HD, along with other not wanted data, which one/two of David's SatSignal processing programmes deletes - again, I think I'm right in saying.

Yes, as we say, "you can't see the wood for the trees."

Best wishes,

Hi guys,

today my hvs1 and hvs2 data has been activated by eumetsat.

I am flashed about the the huge different kind of data packets and i wonder
how to process them an which software i should use.
By the way is Msg-data-manager able to process Goes images?
We say in german that we can't see the forest because of lot of trees ????



Yes, the first need for most users is to limit the data you get, and the
processed data you want to keep!  Incoming data is 250+ GB/day on BS/HVS-1
and ~400 GB/day on HVS-2.

For GOES-15 I have free software:

and for GOES-16/17 too:

I've done that rather than tagging yet another satellite with yet another
protocol onto the MSG Data Manager.
