Re: [gembud] GOES-15 imagery

Hi Michael,

Yes, the latest images now display on nmap2. However, the zoom button still doesn't operate for GOES-15 products(McIDAS area files and gini images). Will that clear up on its own eventually, or will you need to modify how Gempak interprets the images?

You should notice the images beginning with 1930 UTC are full (1-1.5 Mb)
and display fine in NMAP2.

Do I need to make changes to my pqact entry for the new GOES-15
imagery? At present, the files I get are only a few kilobytes in
size(images appear black on nmap2).

Also, I'm unable to zoom in with gini images that use GOES-15
data(WEST-CONUS for example). I've tried both GEMPAK6.2.0 and 6.4.0
versions of nmap2. The zoom buttom accomplishes nothing(fine with gini
images using only GOES-13 data). I've also noticed with
composites(SUPER-NATIONAL images), zooming results in a mix of zoomed
and unzoomed images(map background with zoomed image frames appear
wrong). Are these problems just limited to me, or are there format
changes that were unforeseen for  GEMPAK6.4.0?
