2 ==========

4 polar2grid is a software package, mainly python, for converting polar
5 orbitting satellite data from various sources (VIIRS, MODIS, etc.) into
6 formats that are useable by meteorlogical visualization applications,
7 such as AWIPS, NINJO, etc.
8
9 Currently, polar2grid only works on converting a few VIIRS bands to
10 AWIPS-compatible NetCDF files.

12 SVN Conversion Notes
13 --------------------
14
15 The original repository included a "vendor" directory in the root repository
16 that was being used to store the vendor release of ms2gt. The repository was
17 converted to git using "svn2git" which does not support this structure.
18 For now, the "vendor" directory is not included in the git repository although
19 it may be added later.
20
21 To save on space usage for github the AWIPS NetCDF templates were not included
22 in the svn to git conversion (via the "--exclude '.*\.nc'" command line flag).
23 For proper execution of polar2grid from the git repository these files will
24 have to be downloaded and placed in the
25 ``py/polar2grid/polar2grid/grids/`` directory. These can be downloaded from
26 the following location:
27
28 * http://www.secc.wisc.edu/software/polar2grid/_downloads/grid211e.nc
29 * http://www.secc.wisc.edu/software/polar2grid/_downloads/grid211w.nc
30 * http://www.secc.wisc.edu/software/polar2grid/_downloads/grid203.nc
31 * http://www.secc.wisc.edu/software/polar2grid/_downloads/grid204.nc

33 Note that since these are not in version control through git, there is no
34 easy way to tell if the files have changed through github.
