Charley, Phil,

It seems to work best if you make double entries specifying both 80 AND
180... The Unidata IDD GINI data works when it's 80 and the UNIWISC stuff
and ftp'd data from NWS works when it's 180.  Don't ask me why... :)

Hey Charley,
        I ran into the same problem until I changed the values for GOES-13 in
the imgtyp.tbl from "80" to "180"  Everything worked fine after that, though
I did need to change my GAREA's in my scripts.

Hope this helps,

Hi all,

We have been using gpmap to make satellite gif images and lost the ability
when the switch to GOES-13 occurred.  Our data comes through the LDM and
NMAP is able to view the new imagery with no changes.  I tried copying the
GOES-12 settings into the imgtyp.tbl for GOES-13, but that has not worked.
I get the following error message: “no entry in the image table,
imgtyp.tbl, for file IR_20081218_”

The script I am running is shown below.  Any ideas?

Thanks,
Charley

Here’s the entry I added to our imgtyp.tbl:
