Animate one day of GOES-East satellite imagery

Contributed by: Arnoud Buzing

ResourceFunction["GOESEastAnimate"][assoc]

creates an animation of GOES-East imagery for a given day and band.

Details and Options

Bands must specified with "Band" and run from 1 to 16.
Additionally, "Band" can be specified with "GEOCOLOR", which results in a true color animation.
Dates must be specified with "Date" with DateObject.
Image size must be specified with "Size" and should be one of: Small, Medium, Large.

Examples

Basic Examples

Create an animation of GOES-East imagery of yesterday with the mid-level water vapor band (9):

In[1]:=
ResourceFunction[
 "GOESEastAnimate"][<|"Date" -> Yesterday, "Band" -> 9, "Size" -> Small|>]
Out[1]=

Create a true color animation:

In[2]:=
ResourceFunction[
 "GOESEastAnimate"][<|"Date" -> Yesterday, "Band" -> "GEOCOLOR", "Size" -> Small|>]
Out[2]=

Animate band 16 (CO2 Longwave - IR):

In[3]:=
ResourceFunction[
 "GOESEastAnimate"][<|"Date" -> Yesterday, "Band" -> 16, "Size" -> Small|>]
Out[3]=

Possible Issues

Incomplete days (e.g. Today) will produce incomplete animations:

In[4]:=
ResourceFunction[
 "GOESEastAnimate"][<|"Date" -> Today, "Band" -> 11, "Size" -> Medium|>]

Requirements

Wolfram Language 11.3 (March 2018) or above
