I am looking for global satellite images(as recent as possible - say three hours ago) of meteorological data that can be accessed through OPeNDAP protocol i.e. subsetting via latitude, longitude and time. Meteosat does have them but only upto 2015 - Meteosat OPeNDAP I am looking for current global satellite images that can be accessed via OPeNDAP. For continental USA this site does provide the images - CONUS

NASA's worldview app is pretty cool and might be a good starting place, but for OPenDAP access you probably want to look into one of NASA's DAACs. For example, the Physical Oceanography DAAC, PODAAC has an OPeNDAP server located here.

    I checked the site but the images available via OPeNDAP are not current. But still a good site and happily upvoted

  • I'm not sure about OPeNDAP, but NASA's LANCE website may have something helpful if your priority is getting the data as fast as possible.

  • great site for current satellite images. I will send them a note asking them to put their images on OPeNDAP. The reason I want this is because I want to invoke OPeNDAP via Python and link it to the rest of my application
