Rerddap-Xtractomatic (Rerddapxtracto) is a set of free tools, written in R, that allows client-side access of environmental data served on the ERD/CoastWatch ERDDAP Server.
The Rerddapxtracto tools were originally developed for the marine biology tagging community to extract satellite data coincident to the tracks from tagged animals. The packages have been extended to extract a 3D cube of data and time series from the region defined by the polygon.
Rerddapxtracto scripts work within R to subset and extract satellite and other oceanographic-related data from a remote server. A legacy Xtractomatic package for Matlab is available but not supported.
Data can be extracted
for a moving point in time along a user-supplied set of longitude, latitude and time points,
