Once a local ground receiving station has been installed and configured,  the satellite and environmental data that is (re-) broadcasted via communication satellites can be received and stored on a storage device (server). Since the data is continuously received through GEONETCast, the “GEONETCast Data Manager" data management system, has been developed to manage the data streams. It can be easily configured using a simple ascii text file.

The software can be used as a stand alone and can be downloaded from here

Unzip the file and execute the DataManager.jar file (this requires JAVA). Download the GEONETCast Data Manager user manual and installation guide.


The Data Manager software uses ascii configuration files. Download sample configuration files that can be used to move data stream files that are received at the ground station to a storage device here.



As of January 19, 2013, EUMETSAT started to operationally disseminate images and derived products from MSG-3. Due to the use of this new operational satellite, the file name conventions have changed. A new data manager configuration file has been created in which entries to MSG2 have been changed to MSG?

In April 2013 (see EUMETSAT), MSG2 (used to be MSG1 - METEOSAT-8) will take over the Rapid Scanning Service (RSS). -  Further updates on this service will follow if this modification has consequences.
