Introduction

PyEPR provides Python bindings for the ENVISAT Product Reader C API (EPR API) for reading satellite data from ENVISAT ESA (European Space Agency) mission.

PyEPR, as well as the EPR API for C, supports ENVISAT MERIS, AATSR Level 1B and Level 2 and also ASAR data products. It provides access to the data either on a geophysical (decoded, ready-to-use pixel samples) or on a raw data layer. The raw data access makes it possible to read any data field contained in a product file.

Requirements

In order to use PyEPR it is needed that the following software are correctly installed and configured:

  • Python2 >= 2.6 or Python3 >= 3.1 (including PyPy)
  • numpy >= 1.5.0
  • EPR API >= 2.2 (optional, since PyEPR 0.7 the source tar-ball comes with a copy of the PER C API sources)
  • a reasonably updated C compiler (build only)
  • Cython >= 0.15 (build only)
  • unittest2 (only required for Python < 3.4)
