where can i download RPSstuff?

#1 Post by limaolin » Thu Jun 26, 2014 10:53 am

read_srtm30plus.m: Read SRTM30+ worldwide 30sec (~1km) topography via Web Mapping Service.

The wikiroms sugested using svn to download read_srtm30plus.m:

svn co https://svn1.hosted-projects.com/cmgsof ... k/RPSstuff ./rps_stuff

but there are mistakes like this

svn: OPTIONS of 'https://svn1.hosted-projects.com/cmgsof ... k/RPSstuff': could not connect to server (https://svn1.hosted-projects.com)

what's the right address
thanks a lot

I have updated the SEAGRID wikiroms page to point to the seagrid and RPSstuff toolboxes on Github instead of the no-longer-used SVN repository.

In addition to using read_strm30plus.m for bathymetry, I find that NOAA's ERDDAP is very useful for topography (as well as remote sensing and insitu data). For example, check out the topography datasets available.

ERDDAP allows you to subset and slice and then download as .mat file, or netcdf file or lots of other formats.

rsignell:
there is some wrong when i use read_srtm30plus follow the help on wiki.
my code is

ax=axis; % grab the lon/lat range
lon_range=ax(1:2);
lat_range=ax(3:4);
[xbathy,ybathy,zbathy]=read_srtm30plus(lon_range,lat_range,60);

the wrong message is

??? Undefined function or method 'ncgeodataset' for input arguments of type 'char'.
Error in ==> read_srtm30plus at 33
nc=ncgeodataset(url);

the NCTOOLBOX for Matlab (easy install at http://code.google.com/p/nctoolbox/), i can't down load the code.

thanks

NCTOOLBOX is now on Github at http://nctoolbox.github.io/nctoolbox/. I recommend getting the stable ZIP or TAR release. Or you could just use ERDDAP, which requires installing nothing -- just using a web-form to grab the digital terrain model data you want (topo/bathy) and then save as Mat file. The data download page for the SRTM30plus bathy is at http://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/erddap/ ... m30v1.html
