Hi Ghansham -

When you say that you are unable to see the VIIRS formulas plugin, did you go to the Plugin Manager in McIDAS-V and not see it in there? It should be under the Miscellaneous branch at the bottom of the Plugin Manager window. Once you have the plugin installed and McV has been restarted, you should be able to go to the Plugin Manager and see VIIRS Formulas at the top of the Plugin Manager window. To the right of VIIRS Formulas there will be two buttons, the first one is View Contents. If you click on this button, you should be able to view the contents of the plugin (derived.xml and viirs.py).

Note that the VIIRS formulas aren't currently a part of the core McIDAS-V code, so you won't be able to find them in the code you picked up off GitHub.

Thanks -

Hi Ghansham,

I think Bob answered the question correctly. The plugins are not available in github. You need to be running McIDAS-V, and from the main image window, select Tools->Plugins->Manage... Under Miscellaneous, click the green + next to VIIRS Formulas. Close the manager and restart McIDAS-V. The formula should now be installed. You can either view the contents in the Plugin Manager, or use the formula from the Field Selector. Are one of these steps not working? If not, which one? Hopefully we can get this working for you.

Hi Ghansham -

Sorry you are having problems with the McV downloaded from GitHub. I have sent this to a programmer to get his thoughts. In the meantime, could you give this a try to get the VIIRS formulas working?

  1. Go to the Plugin Manager.
  2. From the Plugin Manger, select File > Install Plugin From URL.
  3. In the following window, enter: http://www.ssec.wisc.edu/mcidas/software/v/resources/plugins/VIIRS_Formulas1.5.jar
    ... and click OK.
  4. Restart McV and the VIIRS formulas should be available.

Please let me know if this doesn't work.

Thanks -
Bob
