Fail to run polar2grid on nc file

Dear all,

I have installed CSPP (ACSPO V1.2 VIIRS, MODIS and AVHRR SST Retrieval Software For Linux). It produces nc file.
I have installed polar2grid and succeed when run polar2grid on test data.
Then I run polar2grid with nc file which generated from ACSPO.
It is failed. The result is :

[mega@localhost work]$ acspo gtiff --list-products -f '/home/mega/Documents/polar2grid_test/viirs/input/'
INFO : Initializing reader...
WARNING : No filenames found for reader: acspo
WARNING : Don't know how to open the following files: {'/home/mega/Documents/polar2grid_test/viirs/input/'}
ERROR : acspo frontend failed to load and sort data files (see log for details)

Any solution?

Hello Mega Saputra,

The ACSPO software produces two different output NetCDF files.

One in a legacy format and one in in GHRSST Data Specification 2.0 (GDS2) format. The GDS2 format file is a GHRSST "Level 2 Pre-processed" (L2P) file. The legacy format is the same basic style and structure that ACSPO has been generating from its inception. The GDS2 format follows a set of conventions specified by the Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST). Both formats are available for distribution from NOAA, however, the legacy format is an internal format, and not archived.

The Polar2Grid software supports the GDS2 formatted file, and not the legacy file. Here is an example of the GDS2 format filename:

Please try executing the Polar2Grid software using the GDS2 format file as input.

Good luck,

Hello Kathys,

Finally, I succeed running polar2grid in MX Linux 64 bit.
