What is the EUMETSAT Data Tailor?
The EUMETSAT Data Tailor software is a product customisation toolbox. It makes it possible for users to subset and aggregate our data products in space and time, filter layers, generate quicklooks, re-project onto new coordinate reference systems, and reformat into common GIS formats (netCDF, GeoTIFF, etc.).
