Welcome to satpy’s documentation!

The Meteorological Post-Processing package is a python library for generating RGB products for meteorological remote sensing. As such it can create RGB composites directly from satellite instrument channels, or take advantage of precomputed PGEs.

It is designed to be easily extendable to support any meteorological satellite by the creation of plugins. In the base distribution, we provide support for Meteosat-7, -8, -9, -10, Himawari-6 (MTSAT-1R), Himawari-7 (MTSAT-2), GOES-11, GOES-12, GOES-13 through the use of mipp, and NOAA-15, -16, -17, -18, -19, Metop-A and -B through the use of AAPP.

Reprojection of data is also available through the use of pyresample.
