To get access to the Eumetsat data: see: get_apikeys

Some experimental python scripts to download products from Eumetsat.

text files used in python scripts (defined in
eci.keyreplace <consumer_key> and <consumer_secret>
eci.prdexample file to store product to download (if needed)
python gui product selector
eci_select.pyselect product, add in product file (see get_product() )
python scripts: functions
eci_defs.pydefines variables with default values
eci_funcs.pyseveral functions for downloading
python scripts: examples using above functions
eci_get_in_period.pyExample 1
eci_make_movie.pyExample 2
eci_process.pycontains action to do with downloaded file (used in example 2)

Example 1: download predefined time period and interval

This example downloads zip-files from start_date to end_date, one file for each day, and unzips them.

Example 2: Create a movie with limited time.

By running repeatedly the movie will grow. This depends on the options used with xrit2pic; in this example the movie will start an midnight and will grow for one day, then start over again.

This file has some optional arguments:

  -h, --help        show this help message and exit
  -dry              just show what will be done
  -verbose VERBOSE  0=quiet, 1=errors, 2=+warnings, >2=+info
  -nprod NPROD      Select product from eci.prd (line nr.)
  -product PRODUCT  define product name

The Pi to use depends on the processing (i.e., xrit2pic command):
