NetCDF -> GeoTIFF Conversion

Converts NetCDF into the GeoTIFF file format


For more information, please read the block description.

Block type: PROCESSING

NetCDF -> GeoTIFF Conversion converts from the NetCDF format to the GeoTIFF format. Currently, this block can be used with Weather / Ocean Data and Forecasts by Meteomatics or with the output of Sentinel-5P Level-3 Processor by UP42.

This block is not compatible with Sentinel-5P Full Scenes alone. In order to use this block with Sentinel-5P Full Scenes, you need to first convert Sentinel-5P Level-2 data product into Sentinel-5P Level-3 data product by using Sentinel-5P Level-3 Processor. The output then will be used as an input for the NetCDF -> GeoTIFF Conversion block.

The bands’ structure of the output file depends on the input data structure. In the case of Weather / Ocean Data and Forecasts, the bands are related to the different time steps. For the Sentinel-5P Level-3 Processor, the band is associated with a certain variable.

This block can be used mainly to provide a simple visualization of datasets which were previously in NetCDF format in other geospatial tools such as QGIS. For any further analysis, we recommend using the NetCDF format itself.

Example job parameters using the Meteomatics as data source:

"meteomatics:1": {
"bbox": [
"time": "2020-01-01T00:00:00+00:00/2020-01-02T23:59:59+00:00",
"variables": [
"time_interval": 6
"data-conversion-netcdf:1": {}

Example job parameters using the Sentinel-5P Full Scenes with Sentinel-5P Level-3 Processor:

"s5p-lvl3:1": {
"min_quality_threshold": 50,
"include_ancillary_bands": false
"sobloo-s5p:1": {
"bbox": [
"time": "2018-01-01T00:00:00+00:00/2020-12-31T23:59:59+00:00",
"limit": 1,
"imagery_layer": "L2__CH4___"
"data-conversion-netcdf:1": {}

Output format

AOI.clipped GeoTIFF format.
