We'd like to announce the availability of a new tool for subscribing to PO.DAAC datasets in the cloud- the PO.DAAC Data Subscriber.
The data subscriber allows you to run a few commands to pull the most recent data or data since a specified date to your local directories for use. This is very much like using wget to continuously pull data from PO.DAAC Drive.
The subscriber takes this one step further by allowing users to specify a bounding box to limit their subscriptions to a region of interest. Note this will not subset the data, but only download granules that intersect the data region. This is best for L2 datasets that don't have global, gridded coverages.
An example of this is to download some VIIRS_N20-OSPO-L2P-v2.61 data for a small region (Hawaii):
- Code: Select all
podaac-data-subscriber -c VIIRS_N20-OSPO-L2P-v2.61 -d ./data -b="-178.334698,18.910361,-154.806773,28.402123"
If there are additional features or functions you'd like in the tool, please let us know!
