Re: Radar Calibration

Hi Joleen, I compared your radar area file compared to one create with IMGCOPY. Your AREA has a few words that need to be fixed: LWU POKE AREA0001 0 56 LWU POKE AREA0001 236 60 LWU POKE AREA0001 768 62 LWU POKE AREA0001 1 63 Note, even with these words corrected, you can only display RAW values in M...

In the latest nightly, if you try to use swathtogrid to create separate layers, the resolution is not remembered between parameters. This is a new bug and has been written up in Inquiry 2177 .

Re: VIIRS second image layer speckled

Hi HP,

Using the latest nightly, I was able to overlay band 15 brightness temperature with band 15 radiance without any speckles. I am running on a Windows 7 workstation. Please let me know the bands and parameters you are using to create your display. Also let me know your operation system.

Re: Colour Tables

Hi Carl, You'll need to convert your .cmap xml formatted file before they can imported into McIDAS-V. You might consider converting the file into an ascii file where each line contains RGB values. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?> <colorMap> <color...
