Tools / Documents

Tools for using satellite products and documents related to product format and other information are available.

Toolkit


The Tools to use SGLI products are available.

Tools for GCOM-C/SGLI
SGLI Map projection & GeoTIFF conversion Tool(Ver.1.2)for Windows Download
for Linux Download

Operating environment : Windows 10, Linux 2.6(64bit)
The tool is used to convert the imageries in HDF5 files of SGLI products into the generic GeoTIFF files through map projections of geodetic latitude/longitude or polar stereographic coordinates.
The user interface is command line input using CUI (Character User Interface).
For GUI (Graphical User Interface) tools, please use this "Format Conversion Tool".

For more information, please refer to the following manual.
-SGLI Map projection & GeoTIFF conversion Tool User's Manual

SGLI RSP Path Detection in L2 Tile Tool (Ver.1.0)for Windows Download
for Linux Download

Operating environment : Windows 10, Linux 2.6(64bit)
This tool detects the number of RSP-path for raster data in the L2-tiles on a daily basis (01D) based on the observing time and attaches it to the original filename. If the tile includes multiple RSP paths, the tool separates the tile for each of the paths and outputs their corresponding multiple HDF5 files.
The user interface is command line input using CUI (Character User Interface).

For more information, please refer to the following manual.
-SGLI RSP Path Detection in L2 Tile Tool User's Manual

Tools for AMSR2
GCOM-W1 User ToolDownload
platform:Windows 7 (32bit), Windows10 (32bit)
GCOM-W1 User Tool provides users with various functions to use earth observation data of GCOM-W1/AMSR2,ADEOS-II/AMSR and Aqua/AMSR-E. You can display, edit, clip and project them on a map. 
For more information, look at the User's Manual.

AMSR2 Product I/O Toolkit (AMTK)Software
Leap seconds data
platform:Sun, SGI, Linux
There are two ways to read AMSR2 data constructed as an HDF5 file.
One is to use only the HDF5 library, and the other is to use the AMSR2 Product I/O Toolkit which uses
the HDF5 library as internal routine, for reading AMSR2 data in your own C program or Fortran program.
It is necessary to download Leap seconds data with this software.
For more information, look at the User's Manual.

Please be sure to use the old AMTK (Ver. 1.12) for old PRC product (Ver. 1.0).
