These are the BUFR files that we get in real time here at TPC.
Displaying them in NMAP is no problem, but I'd like the flexibility of
plotting the data in gpmap. I can get the real time data to plot (QSCT
or QSCT_HI) but I can't figure out how to point gpmap to the archived
data rather than the real time datastream.

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:
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.

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.
