Color Filled Contours over Topography

Post by joleenf »

This is a bundle which uses the color filled contours over topography display brightness temperature values as a vertical coordinate so that the peak of the fire can be viewed easily. For more information on how to do this, please see the Tips and Tricks forum "Displaying satellite data fields in three dimensions."

Sometimes there are issues with display labels being lost. Just for reference, this bundle has one tab, two panels. The first and second panels should have a color bar visible at the top with a range of 260K-400K. The display labels for panel 1 should read:
GOES-12 Verdale Fire 3.9 micron Brightness Temperature Data
(UW/CIMSS) Date/Time: 2003-10-27 09:45:00Z.

The display labels for panel 2 should read:
Simulated ABI Verdale Fire 3.9 micron Brightness Temperature Data
(UW/CIMSS) Date/Time: 2003-10-28 09:50:00Z.

This data is preliminary, the ABI data is simulated. If you wish to use the simulated data in this bundle or the images, please cite the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS).

Thanks to CIMSS for creating the simulated ABI data for this bundle and to many members of CIMSS and the McIDAS help desk team for helping me put together this bundle.
