Data Processing Descriptions

Which type of data processing would you like to see info about?

Space-Based    Ground-Based    ASI    GMAG    Ephemeris


There are 2 avenues for retrieving the ASI image data. The University of Calgary collects low resolution data daily via an internet connection to each GBO. An automated RSYNC process at the SOC also runs daily to "mirror" this data on the RAID system. Once the data are mirrored they are converted into Level 2 products in CDF format. This data is also accessible via the TDAS software. The second avenue of collection involves the retrieval of the GBO hard drives containing the high resolution images. These hard drives are collected by the University of Calgary, where the data are downloaded and validated. Once this process is performed the hard drives are shipped to the SOC for inclusion in the RAID system.
