Himawari Downloader

Himawari Downloader is a Java based application that let's you download sattelite images from the japanese Himawari sattelite. The imagery is available on this site https://himawari8.nict.go.jp/. However this site has the drawback that you can't simply save the image because it is split into multiple pieces. The program I wrote loops through and downloads all required images depending on the resolution. They are then stitched together and can be saved to disk.

Attention! 11000px option produces 150+MB images!
