AIRS tools banner

The listed tools are available to help handle and manipulate AIRS data files. The AIRS Data Support Team at GES DAAC is researching, testing and enhancing varioius software packages to designed to handle the HDF-EOS data format (the AIRS standard format). Inclusion of an externally developed software tool in the list below does not represent an endorsement of that tool by the Goddard DAAC.

   Package Name
Description
AIRS data readers provided by the AIRS Science Team

FORTRAN/C readers for Level-1B and Level-2 data, refer to the accompanying Guide document.

IDL and MATLAB procedures to read Level-1B, Level-2 and Level-3 product files.

A command line utility to browse the content of HDF/HDFEOS files.

A Java-based GUI tool for browsing and editing HDF4 and HDF5 files. HDFEOS plug-in extends the capabilities to HDFEOS files.

Giovanni
Giovanni is a Web-based application developed by the GES DISC that provides a simple and intuitive way to visualize, analyze, and access vast amounts of Earth science remote sensing data without having to download the data. AIRS Level-3 daily, 8-day and monthly products are available through Giovanni.

 

Package Name
Description
swath_time utility
A command line utility that converts Time() array stored in AIRS Level-1B and Level-2 products from TAI93 (TAI seconds since 1993-JAN-01) to UTC date and time, and prints the results to screen in ISO date format.
