Hi Ernst

It took about just under 2 minutes on my PC - not more than 50%  CPU usage

It used about 40GB of the available 128GB

I have an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7820X CPU @ 3.60GHz   3.60 GHz

Its a lovely image too

Regards

Graham

Graham and Jeskynar

I made a minimal script that you can test. No fancy stuff just the *.jpg of one segment. Should run out of the box.
I used 80m resolution (GRDM) but there is 50m resolution (GRDH)! This should pretty much fill your monster
RAMs. Gives 4000x4000 (GRDM) or 8000x8000 (GRDH) *.jpg of iceberg A68a. All is found on my receiver Io.

Good luck
Ernst

P.S. Please post results like memory usage, processing time, PC used. Do *not* post original sized *.jpg here.
Not sure how long is takes to get the *.zip files. You will also find them on the Copernicus Open Access Hub

Beautifully done Ernst. Colouration, even when false, does add significantly to the image. My sar remains in the b&w realm.

Still a long way to go in learning to get to this level.....

Graham,

a very nice image. You don't get those very frequently. I have NEWS from A68a but these are SAR 80m resolution.
I cannot post these here and have no www site either. So I put them on my 12 years old EUEMETCast receiver Io.

See here (files are huge):

http://5.153.116.236:81

and don't ask me for my Satpy script (it uses MultiScene and other high end stuff (needs up to 24GB RAM).

Cheers,
Ernst

P.S. You now probably have 2 instances of GSHHG coast line Data Base (I think it only was a path problem).

Hi Ernst

Lovely images

I am up for a challenge - I have 128Gb Ram in my PC

Hi Ernst

Just to let you know I have produced a Sentinel 3 image today using your script

Its of South Georgia but not worth posting as its mostly cloud

I had to download GSHHG files though before it would work

Thanks for the script

Re: A68 gif animation December 01-08

Thorsten Miglus
 

Hi all,

I will update the animation on a daily basis at the same link:
A68 Animation

Folks, that are interested in, can have a daily look on the way of iceberg A68.

The images are processed with Eumetcastview. Thank you Hugo for providing your excellent software.
The animation is processed by ImageMagick.

Cheers,
Thorsten

Re: Dish elevation lever.

geojohnt@...
 

Hello Ernst,

Sorry for the delay in responding.
Thanks for the post.

Ah, the dreaded Triax dish mount.
Totally impossible to secure the dish to the post without some dish movement remaining owing to the crazy design.
OK for satellite TV perhaps but not for the alignment accuracy we require for EUMETCast. 

Triax told me they had not had any complaints about difficulty in aligning the dish accurately from users and were not going to change the design.
The 'semi circular' dish clamp - clamping onto a 'rounded bracket' back plate allows for azimuth movement and it is impossible to clamp elevation and azimuth separately whilst aligning the dish.

I seem to remember Arne had made a device but I'm not sure I've seen this one before.

Simple and looks very effective. 

Regards,
John.

Hello John

I designed such a thing for the Triax TD100 that has a very poor elevation control.
Arne van Belle redesigned it for an easy homebrew construction. Maybe that helps.

Re: A68 gif animation December 01-08

Ernst Lobsiger
 

Hi Thorsten,

a very nice image. The ice even sometimes looks light blue! You can also see the smaller pieces floating ahead. A68 is turning CCW the last days also seen on my pictures. This animation tops about everything before. The only improvement I can think of is using a higher resolution for the coastline. These exist in the GSHHG Data Base. A68 gives us a nice contest and makes a lot of fun (might be less fun for the Penguins on South Georgia). We will probably see more results: Graham Woolf and Christian Peters might soon be ready with my Pytroll/Satpy Sentinel-3 scripts for the final showdown ;-).

Best regards
Ernst
