Interface Options

 

The EUMETSAT Data Tailor provides different User Interfaces, which suit the typical needs of different user categories:

  • the GUI provides a Graphical User Interface. The GUI is targeted to novice and new users as well as generic users. They may want to use to GUI to:

    • perform basic customization of small set of products;

    • set-up the configuration to be used in later automated processing;

  • the CLI provides a Command Line Interface that can be called directly at the command line and in shell scripts. It is targeted at users that want to develop scripts which include customisations. An example would be a system administrator of an EUMETCast Receiving Station;

  • the API provides an Application Programming Interface that can be invoked from Python programs. Other programming languages are not supported at the moment.

  • the Web Service Interface provides a REST web interface than can be invoked from other applications through the web.
