Up Topic SeaDAS / SeaDAS 6.x - General Questions / L1B MERIS data to L2, l2gen (locked)
- By Andrea Date 2011-11-03 10:18
Hello,
I am processing MERIS data and I just downloaded seadas6.3 for Linux 64 bit  I processed the files in seadas6.2 but could not process them up to level 3 and was receiving empty hdf files from the L2 to L3.  While trying to start over in seadas6.3, with the l2gen, I receive the following error after selecting the L1B file for processing:

***************************************************************************
Executing: $SEADAS/run/scripts/getanc.py /net/nas3/data/gis_lab/gis_data/010_BaseMaps/010_202_Imagery/MERIS/OceanColor/AOCs/images/erie/L1B/M2011278161708.L1B_FRS
bash: /home/avanderw/seadas6.3/run/scripts/getanc.py: No such file or directory
% OPENR: Error opening file. Unit: 100

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

The error is that it cannot find the getanc.py script.
That script is included with the processing tar file:
> tar -tf seadas/seadas_processing_linux_64.tar.gz |grep getanc
run/scripts/README.getanc
run/scripts/getanc.py


Did you download and extract seadas_processing_linux_64.tar.gz
?

Hi Sean, Yes I did download and extract the linux_64 tar file using the source file process. I don't see it in the directory. I can try and download and install it again and see if it is there.
Thanks,
Andrea

There are three files necessary to do data processing with SeaDAS:
seadas_linux_64.tar.gz
seadas_processing_linux_64.tar.gz
seadas_processing_common.tar.gz

you'll need all three, plus the sensor specific data files (e.g. seadas_meris.tar.gz)

Andrea,

If you used the online installer, then you didn't get the seadas_processing_linux_64.tar.gz file.
I just fixed a minor bug in that script to correct that problem.

You don't need to re-download everything, just the  seadas_processing_linux_64.tar.gz file.

Regards,
Sean

Thanks Sean,
I usually use the online installer instead of installing all of the tar files manually. Thanks for fixing the bug. 
Cheers,

Sean, version 6.3 is insanely fast. Is that from more of the programs being converted to pyhton? Thanks for all the hard work!
