A STEP BEYOND VISUALIZATION: HOW TO INGEST METEOSAT SECOND GENERATION SATELLITE DATA AND PRODUCTS INTO McIDAS-V, ILWIS AND TerraMA2

Humberto Alves Barbosa, Leandro Rodrigo Macedo da Silva

Abstract


The Laboratory for Analyzing and Processing Satellite Images (LAPIS) of the University of Alagoas (UFAL) has been very active in the usage of Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) satellite data and products since 2007. These data and products are received in near-real time using simple and low cost ground reception infrastructure. Several examples of the ingest and display process for MSG satellite data and products are presented. The ingest of these satellite data and products is accomplished using a McIDAS-V, ILWIS and TerraMA2 tools. It is also shown how these MSG satellite-based products can be combined with other data. Results show that McIDAS-V, ILWIS and TerraMA2 are very useful tools to researchers and forecasters in the input and display process for MSG satellite data and products.
