Re: projection


The issue will be whether or not you have "navigation" for those images. In order to project this, you'll need to have the transformation between pixels and lat/lon. Most of the 'navigated' forms that VisAD can read have this information contained in the file. If this is not the case, then you'll need to write a little code to create a CoordinateSystem and attach it to the domain of your VisAD Data.

After much pain I have found the weather data I was looking for at

They provide Geostationary images like GEOS East high resolution. I wondered if there was a utility in visad, or anything you know for converting a flat picture of an hemisphere to a map so that I can project it on a sphere (in Java3D)
