introduction
Welcome to Remote Imaging in West Sussex.
My name is Mike Jupp and this page is about my interest in receiving HRPT weather satellite images while producing 3D images from them.
This page was inspired by Ed Murashie and his article about 3D in RIG journal 72.

High Resolution Picture Transmission satellites transmit a digital signal at 1.7GHz. A special receiver and decoder are needed to produce the images which have a resolution of 1.1km per pixel. The satellite also has to be tracked across the sky, preferably with a dish antenna, although a helical can be used.
setup for NOAA 3D HRPT
Is the same as for HRPT on the HRPT page.
It is also useful to have access to the NOAA Archive for data not available via satellite in your area.
You will also need David Taylor's HRPTReader, Groundmap, registered version for best images, 3DEM software and the GLOBE tiles for the area of interest. A fast pc with at least 256Mb of ram is required. The computer I use is an AMD 1GHz with 512Mb of ram running WIN2K Pro.

mpeg flybys
The mpegs are fairly large and the best way to view them is to RIGHT click on the link and Save Target As. This will save the mpeg to your hard disk and you will get smoother playing from the disk.


PLEASE IGNORE THE OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY AS THE SENSORS SEEM TO HAVE A PROBLEM
weather station
Now have my Davis Vantage Pro Plus weather station hooked up to the internet. It is now set to refresh the website data every 15 minutes and should be online 24/7. Please do not rely on the weather information for scientific purposes, although it should give a fair indication of the weather here in Steyning. The station has all the usual sensors including sunshine and UV capability. The station also produces NOAA daily, weekly, monthly and annual reports. Weather station time is set to GMT/UTC so will differ local UK summer time by -1 hour.
