Hi, Stuart.

You can find Linux software for MSG processing and other items here:
http://www.alblas.demon.nl/wsat/software/index.html
For Eumetcast/MSG have a look at xrit2pic.

Hi Folks,

So, 5-6 years ago I considered setting up to receive data, events
eventuated, time has passed, new pastures have opened up, and I am once
again considering such a move.

Whats the base requirements these days, and can it be done using linux
only ? Should I wait for another 6 months ?

Thanks

Stuart

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

Stuart,

I have some information on using EUMETCast on my Web page here:

http://www.satsignal.eu/wxsat/atovs/index.html

A modern PC running Windows with a USB DVB receiver box, dish and cable will get you started nicely. I offer a range of software, much of which can be completely automated. Some of it will work under Linux/WINE, and all should work under a Windows Virtual PC running under Linux.

http://www.satsignal.eu/software/wxsat.htm

Rob Albas offers Linux software:

http://www.alblas.demon.nl/wsat/index.html

No point in waiting - a very comprehensive range of data is already available - including much meteorological data (rainfall, cloud-top heights) and data such as air-mass and fog which you can derive from the basic data using software. The data not only is from geostationary satellites around the world, but also includes polar orbiter data from MODIS, NOAA1-19 and Metop-A.

Cheers,
David

Re: Eumetsat / Davis data at my website ? Can it be done !!

I'll get back to you off-list some time in the next few weeks Guy - a bit overloaded with other work at present. Thanks very much for the offer of help.

Robert


Re: Eumetsat / Davis data at my website ? Can it be done !!

Guy Martin <guymartin@...>
 

Hi Chris,

I’m a bit lost now, what am I letting you know about when it’s available. I don’t use Eumetsat data on my site. I don’t run MSG 24/7 and there are plenty of other sites to get that data.

Hi Robert,

Weather Display will access Davis data OK and transfer it to Weather Display Live on your web site. I can help with the settings off list if you go that route.

Cheers Guy

Hi Chris
As Ulrich has already said any commercial or link to commercial use has
to be by contract with EUMETSAT.
The 3 hourly data is unlicenced (00.00, 03.00 etc) and can be displayed
on your website. I use automated ftp and command files to do this. Two
examples are on the GEO web front page.
http://www.geo-web.org.uk/
Other data has to be 24 hours old, so live animations of every 15mins
etc has to be out of date by definition

Regards
Alan

Hello everyone,

I run an Eumetsat system here and also have a ground station :-

www.gw0dqw-wales.co.uk

What I am trying to do is to feed some animated data on an ongoing basis from the received Eumetsat data to my website to compliment what is already there, I understand the data has to be at least 3 hours old under the terms of the licence.

Would appreciate any hints or tips please

Thanks Alan , I now appreciate the sensitivity and removing the link is no problem.

Will concentrate on getting the 3 hour data up

Hi Guy

Hi Robert,

I was going to write it up for my website so yes I suppose I could send it to GEO. It’s a bit complicated as well as sending data to my web site it sends data to a PIC driven display which in turn wirelesses it to a slave unit in the lounge. If there’s interest I’ll give it a go. Less mistakes this time hopefully !

Chris, Guy, how about a piece for GEOQ: I have made a number of attempts to get WeatherLink to upload my data to a website in order to replace my very basic Davis 'Weather Display'. But I always get snarled up and usually finish up crashing everything before reverting to Davis in frustration. How about a child's guide?
BTW my weather station is at http://www.robertsmoore.co.uk/carmel_weather.html
