Re: AQM data units?

Hello, I verified that the units of the Integrated_column_particulate_matter_fine_height_above_ground_layer_1_Hour_Average variable in the ds.dustsdc01.bin file has units of "log10.(g.m-3)". McIDAS-V has a set of units that it is familiar with, and "log10.(g.m-3)" isn't one of th...

Re: problem on using the cursor readout option

Hello, Thanks for reporting this. This is a known issue on Windows machines where the probe output can be hidden behind the taskbar, and is written up as inquiry 982 . I don't have any estimate on when this will be fixed, but I do have a workaround you might want to consider: ⋅ Right-click...

Re: Strips still exist in viirs dnb after swatTogrid operation

Thanks for your suggestion. We have inquiry 1806 written up to add the ability to capture GeoTIFFs. I added a note to the inquiry to contact you when this functionality is added, though I can't give an estimate on when this will be done. Please let me know if you have any other questions or new feat...

Re: Strips still exist in viirs dnb after swatTogrid operation

Hello, Point 1: Through the UI you can export displayed data to cache and then operate on it further. For example, if you run swathToGrid on a SVM14 granule and then perform a mask, you could: ⋅ Load your data, choose the swathToGrid formula, and click Create Display. ⋅ In the Fi...

Re: Strips still exist in viirs dnb after swatTogrid operation

Hello, The swathToGrid formula is intended to remove the bow-tie effect, which are the black stripes you see on the edges of SVM/SVI granules. However, the DNB (Day/Night Band) doesn't actually have these black stripes due to the nearly-constant resolution across the entire swath, so there's no need...

Re: sounding does not show full wind profile

Hi HP, I'm glad that the plugin is working for you. I'm somewhat replicating your problem with "Match Display Region", but not exactly. Things differ dependent on where things are centered. For example: ⋅ Display centered over Wisconsin, USA from the World projection, zoomed in p...

Re: sounding does not show full wind profile

Hi HP, Thanks for following up on this. It's still a work in progress on getting my code changes into the nightly. For the time being, if you would like, you could give a plugin I created a try. If you are interested, you can pick it up from our anonymous ftp server using the following commands from...

Re: sounding does not show full wind profile

Hi HP, I'm not replicating your exact problem, but rather using the nightly build I'm not able to get any soundings plotted from this GFS 0.5degree analysis data. There's an error at Create Display complaining about units not matching up. Where things are going awry on my end is that the dewpoint is...

Re: Satellite Pixel Types

Hello, Of the calibrations you listed for Visible and IR, scaled counts refers to the actual raw values returned by the satellite. Brightness is a unitless calibration with an enhancement range of 0 to 255. This is available for every band, and is a carryover from McIDAS-X, which supports up to 255 ...

Re: Visualizing MHS (.bin format) data in McIDAS-V

Hello, This is the same information that I already emailed you, but I'll post it here as well so it is available for all users. Perhaps another forum user has experience working with this MHS binary format who might be able to provide some more information. Binary files can be loaded into McIDAS-V t...
