With a treasure trove of data at their fingertips, our scientists and programmers have developed equally valuable software packages to process, analyze, and visualize that data. Whether for research, visualization, or training, this software allows users to transform the data into information and knowledge.
Learn more about weather and climate through these educational applets.
IMAPP (International MODIS/AIRS Processing Package)
Receive direct broadcast data from the NASA Terra and Aqua spacecraft to create a suite of products from MODIS, AIRS, AMSU, and AMSR-E.
ITPP/IAPP (International ATOVS Processing Package)
Retrieve atmospheric temperature and moisture profiles, total ozone and other parameters in both clear and cloudy atmospheres from ATOVS radiance measurements.
Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) Algorithm Development Library (ADL)
Contains the operational algorithms for all the instruments on Suomi NPP to support the development of operational science and data processing algorithms.
Polar Remote Sensing Software
To compute radiances or irradiances for atmospheric and surface conditions.
CSPP-Geo (Community Satellite Processing Package-Geo)
For direct broadcast (DB) users of geostationary satellite data processing and regional real-time applications for local product applications.
CSPP-Leo (Community Satellite Processing Package-Leo)
For direct broadcast (DB) users of polar-orbiting satellite data processing and regional real-time applications for local product applications.
Hyperspectral Data Viewer for Development of Research Applications (HYDRA)
Visualization tool to interrogate and analyze multispectral and hyperspectral data.
Satellite Information Familiarization Tool (SIFT)
User-friendly visualization system developed to train meteorologists to use satellite imagery.
HTML5 Image AnimationS webapp (HAniS)
Mobile apps developed by SSEC for viewing our satellite imagery.
Man computer Interactive Data Access System (McIDAS)
Suite of packages for 2- and 3-D visualization and manipulation of geophysical data (McIDAS-V, McIDAS-X and McIDAS-XRD), or for ingest and distribution of real-time satellite and conventional data (SDI and McIDAS-XCD).
Design web-based quizzes in which users identify features in one or more images or photographs -- and now use MatchImage to create on-line, image-matching exercises.
SSEC Data Ingestor (SDI)
Hardware and software system to collect research-quality weather data from satellite broadcast.
Vis5D / Cave5D
System for interactive visualization of large 5-D gridded data sets.
Java system for visualizing, collaborating and interactively steering scientific computations.
Java based software for Internet interactive training and collaboration.
A data visualization platform allowing overlays of near real-time atmospheric, oceanic, and terrestrial satellite imagery and data in a map interface. Imagery is accessible through an API and the software stack is available for download as a stand-alone VM.
