I am getting a blank composite image when running nex2gini (I am a
Here are the vitals:
Running nex2gini using GEMPAK 5.10.2 on a system with RH WS 4
Two images - $RAD/NIDS/CLE/BREF_1.00/BREF_1.00_20071126_1806 and
$RAD/NIDS/ILN/BREF_1.00/BREF_1.00_20071126_1806 are displayable in NMAP2
and both contain reflectivity data in precip mode
Settings are identical to those provided by typing "ph nex2gini" - except
RADMODE and COMPRESS are blank, RADFRQ=0, RADDUR=10, RADTIM=071126/1810..
datatype.tbl has NEXRADIII $RAD/NIDS/%SITE%/%PROD% %PROD_YYYYMMDD_HHNN
and N0RCOMP $RAD/NEXRADCOMP/1km/n0r n0r_YYYYMMDD_HHNN
nex2gini provides 1 line of feedback after it is run - "[NEX2GINI 4] Write
A file n0r_20071126_1806 is produced in the local directory and is about
14208533 - which seems HUGE!
Displaying it with gpnexr2 does run - and produces a map with a color bar
and title displayed - but no data on the map (I am using "rad" for a proj
and "us" for a garea).
Reducing kyky to 1024;768 produces a file smaller in size - but still
comes up blank when displayed with gpnexr2 and nmap2
So three questions
Why is the output file produced blank (per viewing with gpnex2 or NMAP2)..
perhaps nex2gini is NOT reading data from the NEXRADIII dir prescribed in
Does nex2gini actually read files from the NEXRADDIII dir - whether I move
the NIDS files to the local dir or the NIDS dir - I get a blank image.
I'm assuming nex2gini will read from the NEXRADIII dir and dump do the
NORCOMP dir as prescribed in the datatype.tbl - why is the output file
written to the local directory instead of the N0RCOMP dir prescribed in
the datatype.tbl file?
