  • Discovering MTG-I1 test data using the SIFT visualisation tool

    Webinar with Guillaume Aubert, Stephan Bojinski, Sauli Joro, Andrea Meraner, Natasa Strelec Mahovic, EUMETSAT 

    31 May 2023, 12:00 UTC | Register

    In this event, EUMETSAT is demonstrating a multi-mission data visualisation tool SIFT which is suited for viewing and analysing data from MTG-I1 missions. SIFT is an open-source software released by EUMETSAT and University of Wisconsin, which utilizes the popular Satpy python-package for data reading. We also show an upgraded version of the web-based EUMETView tool. For the demonstration, we are using simulated FCI test data and proxy datasets, and encourage active participation by the audience.
