Cloud Phase Distinction RGB product created from Himawari images using iDAP
Airmass RGB product created from GOES ABI level 1b images using iDAP
Reliable, high-performance system for receiving and processing MTG, MSG, Himawari, Electro-L, GOES, SAF and other data from EUMETCast services.
The Dartcom EUMETCast System can receive, archive, process and display MTG FCI/LI, MSG SEVIRI, Himawari AHI, GOES ABI/GLM and other data from EUMETSAT’s EUMETCast Europe and Africa services.
Antenna and receiver options are available to suit different locations and requirements. Ku-Band (Europe) and C-Band (Africa) services are both supported.
Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) data available on EUMETCast initially includes Flexible Combined Imager (FCI) images and Lightning Imager (LI) data, with sounding data to follow.
Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) data includes Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infra-Red Imager (SEVIRI) images with standard and rapid scanning services.
Himawari, Electro-L and Geostationary Operational Environmenal Satellite (GOES) Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) and Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) data are available on EUMETCast Europe.
Images can be viewed, processed and animated using the Dartcom iDAP/MacroPro software. Outputs are also available for processing software such as PCI Geomatica, ERDAS IMAGINE and ENVI/IDL, as well as standard interchange formats such as PGM and GeoTIFF.
