I'd like to work through the MODIS-Aqua example here.
But typically the hardest bit is getting off the ground. What specifically does it mean by 'shell scripting'? is it referring to the command console? Python console?
To get started I tried the 'Decompress' example
bzip2 -d A20023532002360.L3m_8D_SST_4.bz2 in both command and python consoles - neither worked - I expect I need to get the file path in there, but not sure of the syntax. The file currently resides in the Project>Mapset folder where I thought the default path would lead - is that the best place for it?
The next big hurdle will be creating the loop to process hundreds of hdf files, but i can't get off the mark until I work out some of the very basics. Sorry, this is my first foray into GRASS scripting. Any help would be most appreciated!
