In the frame of our Earth Observation projects at Catalysts, we frequently stumble over small things, like efficiently handling satellite footprints. In this blog-post we want to share some of our experience when it comes to handling large area footprints that stretch over the dateline or the poles. It’s not rocket science per se, but maybe not that obvious either.
The Sentinel-5 Precursor mission flying the TROPOMI instrument was launched last October. It is observing our earth with a high spatial and spectral resolution to monitor various atmospheric aspects. You can read more about it here.
Since a few weeks ago, the data is being published on the Copernicus Open Access Hub for everyone to access. My colleague Alejandro and I had a quick look to see how well it can be used for our GRASP projects.
