EOL Satellite Data Services

We provide tools, access and expertise for satellite data processing. CDS has a dedicated server for satellite data processing. This server provides tools for image display, format conversion and a wide range of processing functions. Real-time access to GOES-East and -West data is provided along with near real-time access to MODIS, MTSAT and METEOSAT (via ADDE). Both Terascan and McIDAS software packages are supported on the server. In addition, all GOES imager data is archived to Mass Store in Terascan format and is available from mid-1999 to present day. Other satellite data is obtained and archived, when appropriate, for specific field projects. These tools and services are used by staff to provide satellite data support for EOL-supported field projects.
