ENRAM data repository for vertical profiles of birds
On the BALTRAD infrastructure, a vol2bird pipeline generates vertical profiles (vp) of birds from weather radar volume scans for over 100 radars. To archive these data, the European Network for the Radar surveillance of Animal Movement (ENRAM) has set up an open data repository at http://enram.github.io/data-repository.
Browsing the data
You can browse the vp data at http://enram.github.io/data-repository, which uses the following directory structure and name conventions:
structure name convention └── country two-letter code (ISO 3166-1 alpha-2) └── radar three-letter code (last 3 letters from the ODIM code) └── year yyyy └── month mm └── day dd └── hour hh └── data file corad_vp_yyyymmddhhmmss.h5
In addition to separate data files, a zip file is provided for every radar/month combination (
coradyyyymm.zip), which is more convenient to download. These zips can be found in the year directories (e.g. here).
The repository also provides a calendar heatmap to quickly visualize data coverage for a radar/year combination. It can also be found in the year directories (e.g. here) and is based on the expected files vs the actual files in the data repository.
