Abstract: Xrit2raw a tool to convert XRIT/SEVIRI data into a simple, headerless, raw binary file (along with libxrit, the library xrit2raw is based upon).
EUMETSAT broadcasts Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) data in the XRIT (Low/High Rate Information Transmission) format.
These data are segmented (8 segments for each channel, along with a prologue and an epilogue file) and wavelet-compressed. The ... libxrit library provides an interface to read the XRIT files provided they were decompressed (the decompression tool is not free, but is free to download from Eumetsat) and recombined (the only thing to do is to concatenate the prologue file, the 8 segments of image and the epilogue file, in this order, after decompression into a file using the SATMOS naming scheme, e.g. H-000-MSG1__-MSG1________-XXXXXX___-CYCLE____-YYYYMMDDhhmm, where XXXXXX is the channel and YYYYMMDDhhmm the time of the original files).
xrit2raw is a simple tool designed above the libxrit library, in order to convert the XRIT format into a raw format, for people who don't want to bother themselves with programming. The output will be a simple, headerless binary file, with 3712x3712 values of radiances (in native 16-bit integer, or scaled simple or double precision floating point values, depending on the options set by the user).
