RealEarth can ingest imagery and shape data.
Shape (point/line/polygon) formats:
.zip, .tar, and .gz archive formats are also supported. Each file within the archive must be named according to the RealEarth file naming convention.
Color enhancements and custom legends can be created by uploading McIDAS-X ET enhancements or custom legend definitions. Please see the Editing Products section for more information.
Data files must contain a product ID, date, and time separated by underscores: [ProductID]_[YYYYMMDD]_[hhmmss].extension
Before uploading product data a placeholder must be created on the target RealEarth VM. This ensures that the product will be directed to the appropriate location and the state of the product will have a suitable configuration prior to the initial directory. From the Product Manager, log in and click the Create new placeholder button to register a new product.
Files can be uploaded via a browser form.
File uploads can be automated with the re_upload script.
