Getting Satellite Data
In short, getting satellite data from the government is a big headache. The trouble includes links that loop you around to the original site, multiple sites for a given satellite/project, weird registration for data access, and verbose and obscure variable names. I guess this is part of being a data scientist.
Research from NREL on the topic
These slides include a list of resources of satellites with cloud information. When I’m done downloading the data, I will do cloud computing in the clouds on the clouds!
