Project Overview

Global overview and introduction of the project.

This project aims at receiving images that are generated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) satellites. These satellites are constantly orbiting around the Earth, and they generate large amount of information which is used to predict weather conditions. This information is transmitted periodically by the satellites, and they use an open interface which allows its reception by everybody. Due to this characteristic, we have conducted an academic project with the goal to be reproduced in other academic entities, such as schools, high schools, and universities.
