What is LDM-McIDAS?
LDM-McIDAS is a set of LDM-compatible
products contained in the Unidata-Wisconsin (LDM
, and NLDN
data streams that are available by IDD
feed to core Unidata sites.
Imagery decoded with LDM-McIDAS decoders is usable
by all applications supported by the UPC (e.g., GEMPAK, McIDAS, IDV).
FSL2 and NLDN products are decoded into McIDAS-compatible formats, so
they are intended to be used by McIDAS only.
Do I need the LDM-McIDAS decoders?
If you want to decode the satellite, radar, and satellite-product imagery
in the LDM UNIWISC
, or FNEXRAD
datastreams, you need the LDM-McIDAS decoders. Furthermore, if you
want to decode the FSL2
Wind Profiler data or NLDN
data into McIDAS-compatible files, you need the LDM-McIDAS decoders.
