GOESautotool_v4

A batch file processor using Goestools generated HRIT imagery, Sanchez, ImageMagick, and FFMpeg to generate different types of crops, CONUS and South America, IR, IR with Gradient, IR with Precip Enhancement, and False Color. If you’re interested in trying it out the link to the zip file is in the comments, and instructions in the readme and at the top of the batch file. You must have Sanchez, FFMpeg, and ImageMagick installed on your Windows machine.

after setting up the required folders in the batch file (edit with Notepad++ or Notepad), you run the bat file and:

1. Enter start date for imagery

2. Select type of Imagery

3. select crop region

and go…

It is a work in progress, and I’d like some one to try it out and see how it goes…

version 4.1 12.12.2023
CREATED BY C. REINEMANN, https://USRADIOGUY.COM

REQUIRED SOFTWARE:
FFMPEG https://ffmpeg.org/download.html
SANCHEZ https://github.com/nullpainter/sanchez
IMAGEMAGICK https://imagemagick.org/script/download.php

Copy the included US_Radioguy_Satellites.json into your C:\sanchez\Resources\

SET THE DIRECTORIES BELOW BEFORE RUNNING THE SCRIPT

The first thing to do is to set all your directories at the very top of the batch file!!
Replace the folder names exactly to match your system such as C:\Users\User_name\Goes\Goes16\fd\ch13\. Be sure the “\” are included correctly!

As an example, change the line: set GOES16_IR=D:\GOES DATA CENTER\goes16\fd\ch13\ to: set GOES16_IR=C:\Users\your_name\Goes\Goes16\fd\ch13\ (the location where you store your GOES 16 IR Imagery).

As another example, change the line: set SANCHEZ=D:\sanchez\Sanchez.exe to: set SANCHEZ=C:\Users\your_name\Sanchez\Sanchez.exe (the location where your copy of Sanchez is located)

Examples:

set GOES16_IR=F:\Satellite Imagery\goes16\fd\ch13\
set IR_ENHANCED=F:\Satellite Imagery\goes16\fd\ch13_ENHANCED\
set WATER_VAPOR=F:\Satellite Imagery\goes16\fd\ch09_enhanced\
set FALSE_COLOR=F:\Satellite Imagery\goes16\fd\CUSTOMLUT\
set GOESCROPPED=D:\TEMPPROCESSING\GOESCROPPED\
set GOESREPROJECTED=D:\TEMPPROCESSING\GOESREPROJECTED\
set GOESTEMP=D:\TEMPPROCESSING\GOES16IRTEMP\
set NUMBERED=D:\TEMPPROCESSING\GOESRENUMBERED
set VIDEOOUT=D:\TEMPPROCESSING\GOESIRCROPPED\FINAL\
set SANCHEZ=D:\sanchez\Sanchez.exe
set UNDERLAYFILE=D:\images\world.february.200402.3x8192x4096.jpg
set SATCONF=D:\sanchez\Resources\US_Radioguy_Satellites.json
set FONTSTYLE=Arial
set FONTCOLOR=red
