Re: displaying archived QSCAT data in gpmap

Michael,

What format is your archived data in?

The data in the NOAAPORT distribution is in BUFR, which can be plotted in gpmap using the QBUF identifier as shown at the bottom of:
http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/gempak/examples/QuikSCAT/

the QSCT, QSCT_HI, AMBG1, AMBG2, AMBG3, AMBG4 types are used for
the NESDIS format Quikscat files. This is not the same format as you
would see on the JPL site though.

Hi all,

I'm trying to plot archived QuikSCAT wind barbs in gpmap but I'm unable to get the data to display. I copied the datatype.tbl file to my local directory and altered the path to the QuikSCAT data but I'm still not having any luck.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!
Mike
