PROBA-V S1/S10 product Matlab reader

In this page you can download a Matlab script for reading the PROBA-V S1/S10 products in an easy and handy way. It is developed because there was a high need from end users to be able to extract and read the PROBA-V images and convert them to an easy format to work with (e.g standard IDL/ENVI format).

Download the script (only for windows 32/64 bits)
In case of trouble, please download the following DLL: Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update 4

In the zip folder, you will find the following folder/files:

FOLDERS
->bin folder : folder containing the h5dump binary executable that extracts the hdf5 data
->cfg folder : folder containing the layers.txt ascii file for the HDF5 layer selection
->input folder : folder to be used as input, all the HDF5  products to be converted need to be copied in this folder (two samples are present)
->output folder : folder used by the conversion tool to store the output files

FILES
- pv_read.m : the matlab script to convert the PROBA-V S1-TOC, S1-TOA and S10-TOC HDF5 files into IDL/ENVI files
- ./cfg/layers.txt : ascii file for user HDF5 layer'selection

GETTING STARTED
1- Under the cfg folder, use the layers.txt file to select the layers that need to be extracted from the HDF5 PROBA-V product. To do that, add simply this caracter # behind the layer to be ignored (e.g. the layers.txt configuration below will extract only the TOA images from the HDF5 products, all other layers (e.g  'LEVEL3/GEOMETRY/SAA') are ignored.

#LEVEL3/GEOMETRY/SAA
#LEVEL3/GEOMETRY/SZA
#LEVEL3/GEOMETRY/SWIR/VZA
#LEVEL3/GEOMETRY/SWIR/VAA
#LEVEL3/GEOMETRY/VNIR/VZA
#LEVEL3/GEOMETRY/VNIR/VAA
#LEVEL3/NDVI/NDVI
#LEVEL3/QUALITY/SM
LEVEL3/RADIOMETRY/BLUE/TOA
#LEVEL3/RADIOMETRY/BLUE/TOC
LEVEL3/RADIOMETRY/RED/TOA
#LEVEL3/RADIOMETRY/RED/TOC
LEVEL3/RADIOMETRY/NIR/TOA
#LEVEL3/RADIOMETRY/NIR/TOC
LEVEL3/RADIOMETRY/SWIR/TOA
#LEVEL3/RADIOMETRY/SWIR/TOC
#LEVEL3/TIME/TIME

2- Run the matlab script pv_read.m
3- The output files are stored in the output folder using this convention
                    ./output/PRODUCT-NAME/PRODUCT-NAME-LAYER
4- Enjoy
