The idea of this original development arrived to me while I was in a trekking trip. With a GPS tracker I was able to track my position and then be sure I was following the right path/directions using the bearing recorded by the GPS module. In support of the map on paper (which anyway it… Continue reading GPSconverter: Python software for conversion/visualisation of GPS data ideated while walking in the Piedmont’s mountains

Python tools for improoving the Copernicus NetCDF files downloads/manipulations

I developed these python softwares with the aim to improve, automise and simplify the downloads/manipulations of Copernicus NetCDF marine data (part of the European Union’s Earth observation programme). In the specific, they are the first python tools of its kind created in this framework (https://marine.copernicus.eu) ever realised. The main goals that I wanted to address… Continue reading Python tools for improoving the Copernicus NetCDF files downloads/manipulations
