Re: New version EUMETCastView 1.4.3

Hi Hugo,

Thank you for pointing me to this. Indeed the TLE is 309 days old. Obviously http://celestrak.com/NORAD/elements/resource.txt is not up date. Now I am using another source and the problem is fixed.

Cheers,
Thorsten
=================================

Thorsten,

CelesTrak is usually pretty good, and careful about things like that. Which satellite, please? If they are stale, I'm sure Dr. T. S. Kelso would appreciate hearing.

Cheers,
David

Re: Goes-15

David,

Data Manager handles the Goes-15 data well. There are artefacts in the base full disk images since 12:00 UTC (very blurry in the east and west periphery) but I assume that is due to the source data and not handling by the Data Manager. Next full disk at 18:00 UTC will hopefully tell more.

Cheers,
Ferdinand
==============================================

Ferdinand,

Fuzzy edges make no sense at the eastern edge of the coverage as the satellite has moved in that direction!

Looking close up I see a double image rather than a fuzzy one. The sooner we can get GOES-17 data (albeit with quite a lot of thermal missing!) the better!

David

David,

all is fine with CelesTrak. Pointing to the wrong file on a different drive was the problem. This file was not updated when pressing "Update TLE's".

Cheers,
Thorsten

David,

Whatever the name for it (double, blurry or fuzzy) starting 00:00 UTC it disappeared and all seems well at the edges. This does not, however, alter the desire to have Goes-17 taking over as soon as possible.
Btw, I read that there are plans to use Goes-15 IR in tandem during the 'hot' periods in which the Goes-17 IR channels are affected, so there might be less missing thermal than expected.
There is a nice read here http://cimss.ssec.wisc.edu/goes/blog/archives/29874 and an informative power point presentation at:

That's good to hear, Thorsten. I know that my daily Kepler update points a number of different directories on a number of different PCs. You may have seen that my software does try to provide warnings about out-of-date Keplers.

======================================

Thanks, Ferdinand. I only checked data from last night's 2100 GOES-15 (maximum visible) so I'm pleased it's now resolved.

If they do plan GOES-15 IR fill in, I hope they rectify it to the same nominal longitude and to the same resolution standards. Having to cater for both would be an unwelcome pain! I think they still have GOES-13 and GOES-14 in operational orbits (i.e. non-graveyard orbits).

Cheers,
David

GOES 15 will certainly double up with GOES 17 for at least 6 months but GOES 15 data will change to NetCDF format during that period. Bit of a pain for the programmers !

Correct Douglas. I forgot all about the format change that will also apply to G-15.

Re: Goes-15

Thorsten Miglus
 

Douglas and Ferdinand,

GOES 15 images can be extracted by a Python script from the NetCDF files. I have done this with GOES 16 before. But you must install Anaconda to run the script. I plan to write the script for GOES 15 if the NetCDF files become available.

Cheers,
Thorsten

Re: Goes-15

That sounds like an interesting proposition Thorsten. I know that David was not too keen considering G-15 in NetCDF. People that have automation of Sentinel running most likely already have Anaconda installed.

I appreciate your suggestion!

Ferdinand

The GOES 15 data country outlines are incorrect with Animator, but I appreciate that it is probably not worth the effort to have this fixed with hopefully GOES-17 coming fairly soon.

Is there any way to work around error messages? A numberof times recently I have had red icons with a message that a key is missing. This stops all reception and so far I have had to re-start 'by hand'. A nuisance if you have been away for a while and are missing files.

Hi Thorsten

Sounds Interesting

I already process Sentinel 3 data using Python so would you mind posting your GOES-16 script ?

Does it work on Windows or is it just a Linux script

Kind Regards

Re: tc-recv-client

Robert,

are you already using the latest tellicast version (2.14.2 or 2.14.4)? If not, an update is highly recommendet.
On the other hand this is an USB issue with the EKU. Maybe using a different USB port may help?
I have seen the missing key message in the past. But it never have stoped all reception.

Cheers,
Thorsten

Graham,

Here is my (beginners) Python script using Pytroll/Satpy. I don't see why it should not work under Windows.

Cheers,

Re: Goes-15

Thorsten Miglus
 

Hi Graham,

I will post the script here, if available. It will contain a Windows script and a Python script. I plan to use the same file format and naming as David's MSG Data Manager. So the files can be used with MSG Animator.

Cheers,
Thorsten

Graham,

Sorry I forgot to add the CR for the Windows world. Just open and save it with WordPad. That will add the missing CR.

Good luck

Hi Thorsten

Thanks very much - I'll look forward to trying it

Re: Goes-15

Graham Woolf
 

Hi Thorsten

No problem

Just a quick question or two - how do you run it ?

Do you run it once a day and process all the files that come in or do you run it every time there is a new image or  do you just run it as a one off picking the timeslot you want

Regards

Graham

Re: Goes-15

Thorsten Miglus
 

Graham,

UUUPS - you asked for the GOES-16 script.
Find it attached. I used it with Windows.

Run it like this:
python GOES16.py nc-file image-file

nc-file is the file received from Eumetcast.
image-file is the filname of the resulting image.

The script produces png files.

Cheers,
Thorsten
