GOES

This tab allows for the conversion of GOES images provided in netCDF4 (.nc) format inside a directory.

## 3.4.3.2.1. GOES conversion¶

• Directory containing GOES bands : open a directory containing GOES bands; names of bands must end with the corresponding number;
• Use value as NoData : if checked, pixels having NoData value are not counted during conversion; it is useful when image has a black border (usually pixel value = 0);
• Create Band set and use Band set tools: if checked, bands are added to the active Band set after the conversion; also, the Band set is processed according to the tools checked in the Band set;
• Add bands in a new Band set: if checked, bands are added to a new empty Band set after the conversion;

• RUN : select an output directory and start the conversion process; only bands listed in the table Metadata are converted; converted bands are saved in the output directory with the prefix RT_ and automatically loaded in QGIS;
