Language/Sofware: C
Application type(s): Data Conversion
Related project(s): MSG
Description:
The FIS format is a data format provided in particular by the SATMOS Archivage Center, at Lannion (MSG data at Lannion are archived this way). The program fis2raw converts the FIS format into a raw, headerless, binary file. The number of values and their type may be retrieved while performing the conversion.

Language/Sofware: C
Application type(s): Data Conversion
Related project(s): MSG
Description:
xrit2raw is a simple tool designed above the libxrit library, in order to convert the XRIT format into a raw format, for people who don’t want to bother themselves with programming. The output will be a simple, headerless binary file, with 3712×3712 values of radiances for the low resolution channels, or with 11136×11136 values for the high resolution channel HRV (in native 16-bit integer, or scaled simple or double precision floating point values, depending on the options set by the user).

Language/Sofware: C, C++
Application type(s): Reprojection
Related project(s): CALIPSO, MODIS, MSG
Description:
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.
