Great GOES-16 Satellite Data Link

Postby wxman57 » Tue Mar 28, 2017 10:01 am

The College of DuPage has created a great website for viewing the new high-resolution GOES-16 satellite data:

They also have this folder for accessing individual images by region:

Wow! And I'm not even using a monitor with a lot of resolution! Thanks for sharing. It's amazing what else you can see with high-resolution imaging that you can't in other images.

Try using the slider on the bottom with a visible image and move the slider left and right quickly. You'll notice all kinds of atmospheric waves/impulses moving through an area that aren't as visible using the 30-min imagery of GOES-13.

I watched the weather roll in yesterday on that site. It was amazing to watch the storm clouds boil up, and then blow out. It's about as close to 3-D as one can get without having 3-D.

The link apparently went offline. I can't seem to locate it from their satellite page, either. Maybe they were asked to remove it?

One of the developers presented at the 2017 National Tropical Weather Conference and stated that the College of DuPage site was still in the experimental stage and would be available. Perhaps there is an issue with the DuPage site right now. It is expected to go "Live" by June for everyone. Let's hope it's just a minor technical issue.

Ir's back up now - it must have been a temporary outage. :-)

Super excited to announce that as of today, KHOU has GOES-16 imagery. We launch it on-air today at 4pm.

You'll notice immediately the high resolution and butter-smooth satellite loops with imagery updating every 5min vs every 15 min. This will be clutch when a tropical system threatens Texas (or anywhere, for that matter.) If radar data goes out, we'll have imagery updating even faster than a WSR-88D radar scan in many cases!
