Step by Step VIIRS Processing

by jsimkins2 » Thu Sep 20, 2018 12:50 pm America/New_York


I'd like to learn the recipe for processing VIIRS from PDS all the way through Level 2 file. I wasn't able to find this anywhere online, and am currently stuck with a number of PDS files, a RNSCA-RVIRS file and a leapsec file. What are the steps necessary to get from here to Level 2?

Thank you!

Is there a reason you need to start from a PDS file?  If you can start from the L1A files we distribute, the solution is easily had using SeaDAS.
If you absolutely must stick with the PDS files, you'll have better luck contacting the Direct Readout Lab.
