Seminar: Using IDL with Suomi NPP VIIRS data
I'm in the DC area this week to deliver a set of seminars
at JHU/APL, GSFC and NSOF on using IDL to read, analyze and visualize Suomi NPP VIIRS
data. In the seminars, I use a VIIRS Imagery EDR
stored in a single HDF5 file downloaded from NOAA's CLASS
site. I use the I-Band image data from the file to make 1) a false color composite image and 2) a cloud mask with a simplified version of a Landsat 7 ETM+ algorithm. To explore the datasets stored in a VIIRS file, I use a browser developed by Mike Galloy and David Fillmore at Tech-X
My slides and programs (including the Tech-X browser) can be downloaded from here
: There's now a direct link to download the files.
