How can I select sub-areas of the products or transfer the products into a different projection?
CM SAF offers a basic set of conversions/transformations on its products by integrating some cdo functionalities into our Web User Interface. You can convert CM SAF HDF5-files into NetCDF format, order the data interpolated to a regular latitude/longitude grid and/or select sub-domains during the ordering process. These options are available for most of the CM SAF products. Due to the size of some time series, we currently cannot offer a post-processing for all parameters. If your preferred product format is not HDF5 / NetCDF or if you are interested in other grid types, CM SAF recommends to install cdo on your part and to manipulate the products yourself. Instructions on cdo installation and some examples for the use with CM SAF data are available on our webpage in the Tools section.
