Data Input - Data Output#

The binary encoding of many radar products is a major obstacle for many potential radar users. Often, decoder software is not easily available. In case formats are documented, the implementation of decoders is a major programming effort.


For radar data in polar format (eg. rays vs. range) the openradar community published xradar where xarray-based readers/writers are implemented. That particular code was ported from \(\omega radlib\) to xradar. Please refer to xradar for enhancements for polar radar.

This section provides a collection of example code snippets to show which data formats \(\omega radlib\) can handle and and how to facilitate that.
