Description 
Summary

The common problem of using satellite data is their distribution formats, which are not friendly in immediate use in various scientific and analysis tasks. Thus, their format conversion to user-friendly formats becomes necessary. All satellite parameters and products are in ready-to-use GIS format (e.g. commonly geo-referenced, etc)
