Plotting GINI Water Vapor Imagery (Part 2)

This is Part 2 of a series of notebooks showing how to plot GINI-formatted satellite data from a THREDDS server using MetPy and Siphon. In Part 1 we covered how to access and parse the data file. In this part, we cover:

  • Grabbing the data from the file
  • Making sense of the projection information
  • Plotting with CartoPy and matplotlib

Plotting GINI Water Vapor Imagery (Part 1)

Water Vapor Sample Image

This is the first of what we hope will be a series of posts showing how to use Python for weather analysis and create graphics for a variety of purposes. In this two-part post, we demonstrate plotting a water vapor satellite image, specifically using GINI formatted data. GINI is the format currently used for satellite data transmitted across NOAAPORT, and is available on Unidata's demonstration THREDDS server. This first part focuses on accessing the data using Siphon and MetPy; the second part will introduce plotting using CartoPy.
