Pytroll Logo

Pytroll is an easy to use, modular, free and open source python framework for the processing of earth observation satellite data. The provided python packages are designed to be used both in R&D environments and in 24/7 operational production.

The focus is on atmospheric applications and imaging sensors, but as seen from the list of supported satellite sensors below the data that can be handled by Pytroll allows the usage in a wide range of earth sciences.

Pytroll packages and supported data

You can find the complete list of pytroll packages on github.com: https://github.com/pytroll. Also checkout this overview description of all packages and their mutual dependencies, maturity and known operational usage.

A non exhaustive list of supported satellites and formats is provided here: http://satpy.readthedocs.io/en/latest/

Next Workshop

The Pytroll workshop for spring 2018 will take place this time at the Norwegian Meteorologisk Institutt, in Oslo, Norway, from Monday April 23rd to Friday April 27th 2018.

The Pytroll Workshop is a gathering of some of the developers of Pytroll during which they address issues and new features in the project and work/code together. It is a great opportunity to learn more about Pytroll and get involved in the development. Some experience with Python is desirable to enjoy the workshop at its full potential :)
