A python library that allow to automate the calibration of the GOES Images.


Requirements
============

If you want to use this library on any GNU/Linux or OSX system you just need to execute:

$ pip install goescalibration

If you want to improve this library, you should download the [github repository](https://github.com/gersolar/goescalibration) and execute:

$ make deploy

On Ubuntu Desktop there are some other libraries not installed by default (zlibc curl libssl0.9.8 libbz2-dev libxslt-dev libxml-dev) which may need to be installed to use these library. Use the next command to automate the installation of the additional C libraries:

$ make ubuntu deploy


Testing
=======

To test all the project you should use the command:

$ make test

If you want to help us or report an issue join to us through the [GitHub issue tracker](https://github.com/gersolar/goescalibration/issues).


Example
=======

There are 3 methods to obtain the calibration parameters:

1. calibration
1. calibration_to
1. calibrate

The **calibration** method accepts 2 parameters the satellite and a datetime object:

```python
from goescalibration import instrument
from datetime import datetime

params = instrument.calibration('goes13', datetime(2014, 11, 10))
```

Next, the **calibration_to** method needs a standard NOAA CLASS netcdf filename to parse:

```python
from goescalibration import instrument
from datetime import datetime

params = instrument.calibration_to('data/goes13.2014.124.123422.BAND_01.nc')
```

Last, the **calibrate** method needs a standard NOAA CLASS netcdf filename to save the variables:

```python
from goescalibration import instrument
from datetime import datetime
from netcdf import netcdf as nc

instrument.calibrate('data/goes13.2014.124.123422.BAND_01.nc')
with nc.loader('data/goes13.2014.124.123422.BAND_01.nc') as root:
print nc.getvar(root, 'postlaunch')[:]
```
