5. Data Viewing and Reading

Readers for the native EPS format GRAS Level 1b products are available online at the EUMETSAT website on the Useful Programs & Tools page.

Tools to read HDF formats are TBD, but it is intended that the products can be read using standard HDF libraries. For more information on HDF5 formats in general, see the HDF5 webpages.

Software capable of reading the WMO formats is available from a variety of sources, including ECMWF.

A description of how to read, plot and convert EPS format into NetCDF using Python is given in GRAS EPS-PFS Data Reading Introduction [RD12] which may be downloaded as a PDF.
