Good to hear it's working now. We should not forget that SatPy is still in full development:

*****************************************************************************************
* "SatPy's interfaces are not guaranteed stable and may change until *
* version 1.0 when backwards compatibility will be a main focus."         *
*****************************************************************************************

So sometimes the latest and greatest version breaks a couple of things. That was the case
when they renamed readers (in a more structured way), when they changed from Python
2.7.x (not supported any more) to 3.6 and later 3.8. We have to live with that. On the other
hand as you said, PyTROLL/SatPy is ultra versatile. My HOWTO only scratches the surface ...

Cheers,
Ernst

Just adding to my previous message. Now, using v0.21 of SatPy all issues I had encountered have gone away and I’ve successfully personalized most of the pyscript files.

I’m now starting to work out scheduling of automated tasks. The platform really offers a great versatility. A pleasant expansion of one’s horizon.

Thanks Ernst,

 

That was indeed it. I had used ‘space’ whereas the ‘=’ is what was needed.

It is now installed and working again.

 

Thanks again,

Try "(pytroll) C:\users\fvalk\conda install satpy=0.21" . If you already installed 0.23 this should even downgrade.
It will probably take a while to sort things out. A "(pytroll) C:\users\fvalk\conda list" will show what's installed ...

Good luck

Re: Pytroll/SatPy for EUMETCast

Geniuses,

 

I started a fresh install but find that when I use:

(pytroll) C:\Users\fvalk\conda install satpy

It returns with the full list of new packages to be installed, amongst which I find conda-forge/noarch::satpy-0.23.0.py_0

Is there a way to force satpy 0.21 to be selected instead? I’ve tried to find that in the documentation but could not come up with an answer (likely because I looked at the wrong places).

A pointer would be very welcome.

Hi all, 

 

I would avoid installing Satpy 0.23 at the moment as I have problems/errors with making FY-3D images.

I have only SatPy V0.21 on Windows and V0.22 on GNU/Linux. Both without problems.
arpack and lapack are scientific libraries (linear algebra, solving Eigenvalue problems).

When i do in environment (pytroll) a "conda list" I only find "liblapack 3.9.0" (Linux) here.

Are you sure you installed your SatPy version 0.23 while you were in environment (pytroll)?

Ernst

 


Re: Pytroll/SatPy for EUMETCast

Ferdinand Valk
 

Ernst, I thought I was sure, but start to doubt now. In any case, in order to work from a proven state (and understanding that Christian also encounters errors)  I will deinstall and revert to V0.21.

 

Thanks for the feedback.

 

Cheers,

Ferdinand

Re: Pytroll/SatPy for EUMETCast

Ferdinand Valk
 

I’m using SatPy version 23.0.  Is this version backward compatible with 21 or 22? After I had upgraded I get error messages complaining that dll loading failed while importing_arpack. I have no clue what I might have disrupted.

 

I’m a bit confused.

 

Thanks,

FY-3D.

Well that is my first FY-3D image over the UK without a segment loss or partial segment loss for months although I was not able to check yesterday.
Perhaps things are being fixed now.

Re: FY-3D

Hello James,
I checked this morning and all seems well with FY-3D (other than the individual channel issue that Hugo will fix).
If you select 'True colours' do you have the same issue and does the faulty image also appear in the texture on the globe ?

Regards,
Douglas.
Thanks Douglas,
None of the configuration alternatives do anything except change the colour of the bands. On the globe view the selected segments remain unfilled.
Might try a fresh installation when Hugo updates.
Cheers,
James
======================================================================

Very strange James, especially the segments remaining unfilled.
Cannot think of anything to help other than the very obvious (which I know you will have checked) such as is it the correct files etc. Might be worth a clean re-install just changing over your ini and poi files.
I assume all other sats are working fine in the program.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Regards,
Douglas.

I wonder if under the general heading I could ask what I might be doing wrong with regard to displaying the FY-3D data in Eumetcastview?

When I first installed the new version a few day ago I got some low resolution images when I selected segments off the global view. Now all I get is a mass of horizontal lines of dots.

Any ideas?

I think I might have solved it - something to do with night versus daylight passes. Have to rejig the settings I think as I have found under show all segments files that do work.

Thanks for the help,

Take ImageMagick. With "magick convert" it's easy to add headers or footers with whatever text and font you like.
