NWCSAF technical training: online workshop on technical aspects of the PPS v2014 software package

Published: 6 June 2015

The EUMETSAT SAF to support Nowcasting (NWCSAF) develops two software packages, one for geostationary imagery and one for polar satellite imagery. Both packages retrieve cloud and other parameters relevant for nowcasting and other applications relying on cloud detection. For more information see www.nwcsaf.org

The Polar Platform System (PPS) software package retrieves information on clouds and precipitation from NOAA satellites, MetOp and S-NPP. The recent release of PPS v2014 features also a number of technical updates affecting installation of PPS and interfacing to your environment and applications.

The workshop is addressed to users of PPS wanting to update their application, but also to prospective new users.

The NWCSAF kindly invites you to participate to a two hour online training workshop on the installation, use and operation of the new PPS v2014 software. We plan to have appoximately four half-hour slots around the following subjects:

* Installation

* New output format

* Operating PPS via the main script "RunAllParallel.py"

* Setup PPS in a real-time environment (no Task Manager in v2014)
