Accessing and Using NPOESS Data Products
Hall 5 (Phoenix Convention Center)
Daniel Cornell, Raytheon Company, Omaha, NE
The NPOESS data products are organized using some advanced features in the HDF5 format. Users should be aware of existing documentation, implementation of metadata and data structures, packaging of associated quality flags, and mapping the appropriate geolocation files to the observation data. A survey of current COTS software packages able to open the HDF5 products is presented, and coordination plans with other COTS packages such as IDL and Matlab is discussed.
