Cookie-cutter: A tool for the extraction of geostationary SEVIRI data in coincidence with heliosynchronous satellites
Entry ID: ICARE_cookie_cutter

[ Get Service ]

Summary
Abstract: The Cookie-cutter project is born from the need to compare data from various moving satellites to those from the SEVIRI instrument over geostationnary satellite MSG. The goal was to obtain, for each acquisition day of a given moving satellite, mosaics of SEVIRI slot extractions (the cookies) in best temporal coincidence with the moving platform, in order to allow direct comparisons of data.

Cookie-cutter is a try to achieve this goal. Given a set of some user-specified informations about the moving satellite orbit (period, inclination, node longitudes and hours), the software will generate files in HDF format containing all SEVIRI channels, where only the best coincident data (7'30 at worst, half of a slot duration) are kept, on a one-file-per-day basis. In order to facilitate data exploration, an image file (browse) is produced with each HDF data file.
