Polar2Grid is a set of command line tools for extracting data from earth-observing satellite instrument files, remapping it to uniform grids if needed, and writing that gridded data to a new file format. It provides an easy way to create high quality projected images. Polar2Grid was created by scientists and software developers at the SSEC. It is distributed as part of the CSPP LEO project for processing of data received via direct broadcast antennas. Although Polar2Grid was created to serve the direct broadcast community, it can be used on most archived data files.

The features provided by Polar2Grid are accessible via bash scripts and binary command line tools. This is meant to give scientists an easy way to use and access features that typically involve complicated programming interfaces. Linux terminal commands included in these instructions assume the bash shell is used.
