Re: How Do I Open an MD File?

Hi Chris, After looking at the Tropical Cyclones Archive page I saw that you can download the data in ASCII text format. This format can be loaded into McIDAS-V as a text data source and wind barbs can be plotted. For example, here is an image of GOES-16 AMVs from 12/02/2020: amv_image.png I'm not e...

Re: How Do I Open an MD File?

Hi Chris, As of right now, local point servers do not exist in McIDAS-V, so there is no way to read in MD files. We have an inquiry open to add local point servers ( Inquiry 2155 ), though I have no estimate on when this will be completed. If it's possible to get your data in another format of point...

Re: How do I log into the McIDAS appplication for windows?

After a discussion with the user through email, it was determined that the accounting issue was related to trying to access a server from Satellite Data Services (SDS - https://www.ssec.wisc.edu/datacenter/). Any accounting required for SDS servers/datasets should be obtained directly from SDS. Ther...

Re: Wild Cards for filenames in datasource.xml

Thanks for the tip, Ghansham. Good timing as well since I just ran across this again today attempting to create a new data source. I briefly discussed this with one of our programmers who will try taking a look into this shortly. I'll keep you updated with any progress.

Re: MSG HRV selection misplaced

Hi HP, If you pick up a nightly built today (09/15/2020) you should see that subsetting of HRV data now works as expected. I tried out several remote ADDE datasets and things seem to be working on my end, but please let me know if you see any problems. Relative times still do not work, though the pr...

Re: Cloud Top Temp from Eumetsat

Hello, I'm glad you were able to get your data to display. When you say "the probe tool only works correctly when the image is displayed in the native projection" are you referring to the middle mouse button probe? I'm seeing this work on my laptop using the 10.8um>Temp AREA file you sent ...

Re: MSG HRV selection misplaced

Hi HP, Thanks for reporting these issues. As far as the region selection not working with HRV data, I'm replicating this. This bug likely popped up with code changes on 08/18 in inquiry 2181 . Please note that with all of the changes in this inquiry the nightly might be having several changes over t...

Re: Cloud Top Temp from Eumetsat

Hello, It looks like you're doing things correctly. This is actually a data problem with AREA files created by EUMETSAT. We explored this a while back and our findings are in ( inquiry 1878 ). It turns out that EUMETSAT is running an old version of the McIDAS-X software to produce these AREA files, ...

Re: cannot read local MSG HRIT file under Linux

Hi HP, Thanks for the file listing, things look to be correct from what I can tell. I'm curious if somehow things are being unzipped differently for us. Would you mind trying the following: ⋅ Create a new directory. ⋅ In a Terminal window, cd to the new directory. ⋅ Gra...

Re: cannot read local MSG HRIT file under Linux

Hi HP, Sorry for the delayed response. I just wanted to let you know that I'm still looking into this trying to figure out what's going on. I've still been unable to replicate the error you are seeing with your local dataset. Could you please verify that your data directory contains only the "H...
