What is the GRIB Viewer?
The GRIB Viewer version 2 visualises the GRIB data broadcast over the
DWDSAT system, and data from the Norway & Danish and Météo France OSI-SAF
broadcast over EUMETCast. You can also visit the Yahoo
DWDSAT group to exchange ideas with other DWDSAT users, and the MSG-1
self-help group to discuss EUMETCast data products.
What data does it read?
- DWDSAT GRIB data available from the EUMETCast system (as used for
Meteosat-8/9 reception). Most data is free, however you still need to
register with DWD (or perhaps EUMETSAT). Some DWDSAT data is a separately paid-for
service from DWD.

resolution polar stereographic grid covering the Atlantic part of the

Meteosat-8/9 (Europe, Africa and some South America) regions. More
