The Gridded Satellite (GridSat) data are created to facilitate use of satellite data by non-satellite experts and to help facilitate large scale processing via tools designed to process CF-compliant netCDF files.
Currently, the sole GridSat data are the gridded ISCCP B1 data.
GridSat is currently being transitioned to operational support at NCDC.
Potential other datasets
Polar orbiting data could also be gridded that would allow many to use satellite data. Potential instruments include SSM/I, AVHRR and HIRS.
