Re: [gembud] DCLSFC synoptic decoder

Kwan,

When I used sfmap to plot the data, it was using synoptic data files(not metars, which get decoded with dcmetr). I attached the gif image to the settings below. I also attached the synoptic file used.

GEMPAK-SFMAP>l
 AREA     = ph
 GAREA    = ph
 SATFIL   =
 RADFIL   =
 IMCBAR   = 31/V/LL/.005;.05/.85;.01|.7/1/1/hw
SFPARM = skyc:.8;tmpf;wsym:1:2;smsl;ptnd:.8;dwpf;;stid;p03i*100;brbk:1:2;p06i*100
 DATTIM   = 18
 SFFILE   = synop
 COLORS   = 31;4;2;7;25;22;10;19;31;19
 MAP      = 18/1
 MSCALE   = 1;4/km//10;20;40;60;80;100///.7;.015
 LATLON   = 0
 TITLE    = 31/-2
 CLEAR    = yes
 PANEL    = 0/27/1/3
 DEVICE   = gf
 PROJ     = lcc
 FILTER   = .9
 TEXT     = .9/23/1/hw
 LUTFIL   = default
 STNPLT   =
 CLRBAR   =
 LSTPRM   =

Hi James,

Thank you for your reply.  May I ask if your plot contains only
synoptic reports or it is a mixture of METAR and SYNOP?  I have no
problems with decoding METARs in SE Asia, but all SYNOP in Philippines
and Indo-China are missing, and oddly, all SYNOP in China are decoded
properly.  There are much more SYNOPs than METARs in SE Asia.  May I
ask if you can zoom in to around the Philippines to confirm if I am
not seeing just the METAR reports?

Hi Kwan,

At least using the IDD feed from Unidata, we seem to be decoding
synoptic data without a problem. There do seem to be some missing
data
in some countries, but I'm not sure if decoder related. I've
attached a
plot from 18Z today.

Our pqact entry is as follows(tabs not included):

# Synoptic land reports
#
WMO     (^S[IM]V[IGNS])|(^SNV[INS])|(^S[IMN](W[KZ]|[^VW]))
         PIPE    decoders/dclsfc -v 2 -s lsystns.upc
         -d data/gempak/logs/dclsfc.log
         -e GEMTBL=/home/gempak/GEMPAK6.2.0/gempak/tables
         /gem7/data/syn/YYYYMMDD_syn.gem

Hi everyone,

Has anyone tried decoding synoptic data over SE Asia (the
Philippines,>  for example) using DCLSFC?  It apparently fails to
do so for some
reasons.  The actual synoptic data are present, and GEMPAK station
table contains the required station info.  But for unknown reasons,
DCLSFC fails to decode the data.  DCLSFC does not appear to display
error messages, making it hard to debug.  Any ideas?
