Caliop2ascii: A code to output caliop data on Ascii format

Language/Sofware: C, C++
Application type(s):
Related project(s): CALIPSO
A new version of calipso2ascii is also available. The latest version allows to decode the values of the specific fields of SDS (“Feature_Classification_Flags”) available on most of HDF products

Filedata: High level C++ library for reading a lot of products hosted by ICARE

Language/Sofware: C++
Application type(s): Data Read/Write
Related project(s): CALIPSO, MODIS, PARASOL
This library provides interfaces for reading products hosted by ICARE, like MODIS, CALIPSO, PARASOL, CLOUDSAT, MERIS… It also provides high level interfaces to common file formats like HDF5 or HDF4

Remap: A reprojection tool of geolocated data between various grids

Language/Sofware: C, C++
Application type(s): Reprojection
Related project(s): CALIPSO, MODIS, MSG
Remap is a tool designed to reproject geolocated data (i.e. data with at least known latitudes, longitudes, and expectedly, time).
The tool can read various products and reprojects one (or several ones) into another, using a nearest pixel search.
This tool is SID (still in development) but may be used as is for the supported products (each version documents its supported products).
At this time, CALIPSO IIR, SEVIRI, MODIS and PARASOL are supported.

Cookie-cutter: Extraction of geostationary SEVIRI data in coincidence with heliosynchronous satellites (in SEVIRI geometry)

Language/Sofware: C, C++, Fortran
Application type(s): Extraction
Related project(s): MSG
Cookie-cutter is a LMD/Icare project whose purpose is to emulate an heliosynchronous satellite with SEVIRI acquisitions. The user defines her heliosynchronous satellite by giving some orbital and swath parameters. The tool then builds an HDF file with SEVIRI data as if they had been viewed by this fictive satellite.
