TRMM HDF Data File Read Software
The Goddard DAAC Hydrology Team has developed the TRMM HDF Data File
Read Software, first released in February 1999. The software reads TRMM
HDF data files and writes out to flat binary files. The software has been
tested with most of the TRMM standard products, as well as with some
derived subset products. Both C and Fortran versions are available from
TSDIS developed the TSDIS Science Algorithm Toolkit to assist the TRMM
Science Team's algorithm developers. The toolkit provides a library of
commonly used routines, constants, and macros. It also allows seamless
integration of TRMM algorithms into the TSDIS environment.
The toolkit provides routines for reading and writing data to and from
the HDF files; routines are provided for Levels 1-3 products and for both
satellite and GV. Each of the routines in the toolkit are callable in
either C or Fortran. The toolkit also includes routines for reading
land/sea data and topographical data.
