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 – gansub Oct 24 '17 at 2:47
  • 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. – 7yl4r Oct 24 '17 at 13:52
  • 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 – gansub Oct 24 '17 at 14:54
