Polar2grid is a software package for converting polar-orbitting satellite data from various sources (VIIRS, MODIS, etc.) into formats that are useable by meteorlogical visualization applications, such as AWIPS, NINJO, WMS, etc.

The branching model used by the Polar2Grid team follows a basic
New features still in development should get their own branches. Once these features are complete they are merged
develop branch. Once all features for a particular release have been tested and are considered
"release ready" they are merged into the
master branch. If a master merge is for a new minor version a
maintenance branch is also created for future bug fixes. This branching model was inspired from the discussion
SVN Conversion Notes
The original repository included a "vendor" directory in the root repository
that was being used to store the vendor release of ms2gt. The repository was
converted to git using "svn2git" which does not support this structure.
For now, the "vendor" directory is represented by the
ms2gt directory in
the root of the git repository.
