Base modifier classes and utilities.
- class satpy.modifiers.base.ModifierBase(name, prerequisites=None, optional_prerequisites=None, **kwargs)[source]
Base class for all modifiers.
A modifier in Satpy is a class that takes one input DataArray to be changed along with zero or more other input DataArrays used to perform these changes. The result of a modifier typically has a lot of the same metadata (name, units, etc) as the original DataArray, but the data is different. A modified DataArray can be differentiated from the original DataArray by the modifiers property of its DataID.
