This updated version, V1.1, corrects some issues found in the previous version, and is now available on our FTP server:

ftp://ftp.eumetsat.int/pub/OPS/out/test-data/Test-data-for-External-Users/MTG_FCI_Test-Data/
in the sub-directory called ‘FCI_L1C_24hr_Test_Data_for_Users’.

As previously, the datasets are provided in compressed and uncompressed versions.

An updated test data package description is also available. It outlines in Section 4 the issues corrected with this updated version of the datasets.

The other elements included on the FTP (Product User Guide, Decompression Software and EUMETCast Simulator) remain unchanged.
