The CM SAF R TOOLBOX is an easy-to-use tool to prepare, analyze and visualize CM SAF NetCDF data. The Toolbox comes as part of the cmsaf R-package, which is a collection of more than 60 functions for analysis and manipulation of CM SAF NetCDF formatted data. The CM SAF R Toolbox is based on an R-shiny graphical user interface, which guides through all options. Thus, no R or scripting experience is needed.
The cmsaf R-package can be downloaded for free from CRAN here. For an easy start with the CM SAF R Toolbox we prepared some information material:
As the latest version of the cmsaf R-package (2.0.1) and the corresponding Toolbox version are not completely backward compatible, we still provide the version 1.9.5 including the known folder structure. This version includes some example data (.tar-file and R-Instat .Rdata-file) of small size to test the functionalities of the Toolbox.
In case that a question or problem can not be solved by help of the manual or the cmsaf R-package documentation contact the CM SAF User Help Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org).
