Re: [gembud] GOES 12 outage, GOES 13 changes for GEMPAK

Art,

I'm having no trouble with the GINI files with Pete's edits. Here are the settings I used in gpmap to test it:
 MAP      = 8
 MSCALE   = 0
 GAREA    = 38.7;-77.6;41.6;-71.7
 PROJ     = sat
 SATFIL   = $SAT/EAST-CONUS/1km/VIS/VIS_20081216_1515
 RADFIL   =
 IMCBAR   =
 LATLON   = 0
 PANEL    = 0
 TITLE    = 1
 TEXT     = .8/2/////HW
 CLEAR    = y
 DEVICE   = xw
 LUTFIL   =
everything else blank...

This is with version 5.11.1.  GARP also displays the image.

Does "echo $GEMTBL" give you what you expect?

Cheers,
Steve

Hi...

I've updated my imgtyp.tbl file and garp will display McIDAS GOES-13 imagery and GINI data ftp'd from NCEP, but it pops up "No Image" for EAST-CONUS Noaaport GINI imagery with errors similar to:

GEMPAK: [IM 1] No entry in the image type table, imgtyp.tbl, for file ^/data/ldm/gempak/images/sat/EAST-CONUS/1km/VIS/VIS_20081216_1415

These are the kind of errors I got for the McIDAS imagery before I updated the table, but the error has not gone away for the IDD Noaaport GINI data. Anyone know if there's another tweak that has to be made, or whether there might be a problem with the Noaaport GINI data?

                         Thanks...

Haven't seen anything about this on any of the Unidata mailing lists
yet, but GOES12 is not sending data until further notice. The admin
messages from NOAA (included at the end of this email) explain what
happened. They are currently sending GOES13 data in place of GOES12, but
GEMPAK needed some modifications to the file $GEMTBL/sat/imgtyp.tbl to
get GEMPAK to recognize the GOES 13 data. I added the following lines
right after the GOES12 image types:
