SatSquatch is a tool designed for weather professionals and enthusiasts looking to display imagery from the GOES weather satellites (GOES-16, GOES-17 coming soon) in a user-friendly and responsive interface.

The base version of SatSquatch allows access to all available base satellite layers (full list below) as well as custom derived products such as true color or visible/infrared composite layers. The application also allows users to loop through up to 50 images and toggle overlays for their location, state borders, country borders, major highways, SPC outlook, etc.
