Re: Radar Composites

As Daryl noted, CED isn't one of the projections that the GINI image
format supports (see the GINI specification for its description).
For LCC, a tangent cone is supported (eg Lat1 = Lat2).

Here's a quick script snippet to use a Central lat/lon input to create a
region for nex2gini (CLAT is input command line arg #2, CLON
is command line arg #2). KXKY of 755;605 chosen because of a model
domain ( eg 5km * 151x121 ).

#!/bin/csh -f

set LAT=$1
set LON=$2

set DLAT="3.025"
set DLON=`echo "scale=3; 3.775/c(${LAT}*4*a(1)/180)" | bc -l`

exec nex2gini << EOF
  restore $RADNTS/nex2gini.nts
  KXKY = 755;605
  grdarea = #${LAT};${LON};${DLAT};${DLON}
  PROJ = LCC/${LAT};${LON};${LAT}

Well, a hand waving estimate is 0.01 degree of lat/lon is 1 km. So if you want to go from 35 to 45 in the y direction, you need 10 x 100 or 1000 pixels. and -105 to -90, that is 15 x 100 or 1500 pixels.
