PVA offers a highly interactive tool for EUMETSAT image processing and inspection.
Since 2011 ‘ask’ has been developing the PVA and IPPS software solutions for EUMETSAT. These tools provide visualization, analysis and presentation of satellite data and meteorological products.
The PVA (Product Visualization and Analysis) Tool enables highly interactive image and product inspection at EUMETSAT. It is used for quality control and the analysis of current and archived satellite imagery, as well as derived meteorological products.
PVA is also a core component within IPPS, the Image Processing and Presentation Service. IPPS provides the fully automatic production of content for EUMETSAT’s image gallery from Meteosat, Metop and foreign meteorological data. IPPS is operated 24/7 through the ProducerNG batch production system. PVA and IPPS are based on the TriVis Development Package platform (TriDev). TriDev and ProducerNG are both owned and developed by ‘ask’.
