Re: Pytroll/SatPy for EUMETCast..Help



you are right.

In order to exploit the potential of Pytroll / Satpy most of us (used to working with a double-click configuration to start and go ..) have to reset their mindset.

However from what I understand you can appreciate the advantages of Pytroll / Satpy especially working with SAR on Sentinel 1A / B, while for the other Eumetcast services (Bas, HVS-1 and HVS2), the classic applications provided by David, plus Eumetcastviewer , they do their best.

It's right?

However I love challenges ...

I installed Pytroll / Satpy on my PC ... everything was fine ...

But now, if I want to process raw msg4 files what should I do? (Sorry my brain has been formatted by Windows over the years!).


Reading the basic guide I cannot start a process ...

Thank you very much

Pytroll/Satpy will *never* be that way. It's scripting, working at a prompt and using an editor then and when.
People that just want results and are reluctant to read documentation and even some code should not touch
Pytroll/Satpy. It's learning by doing: One week ago I had no idea about the SAR on Sentinel-1A/B. Of course
as a Pysicist that has worked in remote sensing I knew what SAR means even if had forgotten a couple of
technical details. Today we had the first 50x50m resolution SAR images of iceberg A68. And Ferdinand
already added an image of Larsen-C. That's the sort of things that can only be done with Pytroll/Satpy ...
