I believe Steve Chiswell answered that the code is not in place in
GEMPAK at this time to display native METEOSAT-8 imagery.
I don't think he gave a time line on when that will be added.

Subject: RE: Meteosat-8 Overlay Problem
I was wondering if anybody found the solution to the problem Kris Booker
posted awhile back about not being able to map native, unmapped
METEOSAT-8 images in nmap2? I have the exact same problem. My files
are McIDAS AREA format. My MTSAT and GOES native files map properly,
but METEOSAT-8 do not. Like Kris said, the image displays but won't map
and cannot be zoomed. My imgtyp.tbl is correct, as I can correctly map
and zoom files that I have already used McIDAS IMGEMAP to put into a

I am having difficulty getting satellite images from Meteosat-8 in AREA
format to properly display in Garp and NMAP2. The image actually loads
but does not properly display the map overlays. I also cannot zoom in
on the image either. I had a similar problem with MTSAT-1R when it came
online but it was due not having any entry for it in imgtyp.tbl. I have
an entry (the distribution default) for Meteosat-8 in the imgtyp.tbl
file. I obtained the AREA files from the public NESDIS ADDE server and
I am running GEMPAK 5.9.1. Is anyone else having this problem or have
any idea how to correct it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
