Minimize Project Management

The GUT toolbox has been developed in a European coordinated effort supported by ESA.
The objective of the GOCE User Toolbox Specifications study (GUTS) was to develop - in close collaboration with ESA's HPF effort - algorithms and input and output specification for the subsequent generation of a user toolbox that is required by the general science community for the exploitation of GOCE level 2 and ERS-Envisat altimetry.

The GUT project dealt with the actual creation of the GOCE User Toolbox. The objective of this activity was to develop the first generation of a user toolbox that is required by the general science community for the exploitation of GOCE level 2 data. The purpose of this study is accordingly to:

  • Review toolbox specification and define technical requirements,
  • Develop the first generation toolbox based on existing software,
  • Introduce visualisation functions via GUI based on BRAT,
  • Develop toolbox tutorial,
  • Evaluate and test the toolbox.

Furthermore, two supporting scientific studies are carried out; one on a new Mean Sea Surface and one on error covariance matrix handling.

Further developments are planned.
Your feedback on the Toolbox, the Tutorial, supporting documents and data is of great value.
