Welcome back to AWIPS Tips! Today we’ll be providing you with an update about the GOES gridded GLM products. In case you didn’t see the message go out to the firstname.lastname@example.org about the IDD feed type change for the gridded GLM products, here is a summary.
The GOES gridded GLM products that have been distributed by Unidata over the past few years were created at Texas Tech University with assistance from a Unidata Equipment Award. This grant is due to expire on July 21st, and we have new NOAA Virtual Lab GLM Products being distributed that are the replacement.
The replacement Vlab products include GOES East and West Full Disk.
1-minute data accumulations (level 2):
- Flash Point (lat, lon, area, energy, time, duration) - parallax corrected
5-minute data averages (updated every minute) (level 3):
As of Thursday, June 23, 2022, both the Texas Tech and new Vlab products are available via Unidata’s IDD. What does this mean for you as an AWIPS user?
If you have the latest AWIPS build (18.2.1-5), no changes need to be made. Both the Texas Tech and Vlab products have been previously configured in both LDM and AWIPS to store and ingest.
If you are connecting to an EDEX (including Unidata’s edex-cloud.unidata.ucar.edu) running the latest version of AWIPS then you should be able to see the new Vlab products in the satellite menus.

The Texas Tech products are still available in the Product Browser until the data feed is turned off at the end of July (Note the "_TT" in the product name).
For any further questions on this update, please don’t hesitate to reach out to email@example.com. And check back in two weeks for the next blog post, where we will discuss GOES-18 data ingest for EDEX users.
