Gerry,


We looked into getting AWIPS II, but the RAM requirements were well out of our 
range right now. We weren't sure if we could get away with less since the 
requirements could be set for the standard NWS three-display workstation .

With wide distribution of AWIPS-II on the (event?) horizon, and with NWS and 
the National Centers all going toward AWIPS-II, and speaking as someone who 
doesn't use it operationally at all, I'm not sure bridging the differences are 
a priority any more. I understand that Gempak will continue to hang around (a 
good thing, in my mind) but I'd concentrate on learning and using AWIPS-II.

There are folks on here who've got more informed, and more official opinions. 
Hopefully they'll comment.

Hi all,


I was just curious, has anyone ever attempted to bridge the functionality gap 
that exists between N-AWIPS and AWIPS? Mainly functions provided by D2D and 
LAPS that are not readily available in N-AWIPS. I'm still warming up to the 
abilities of GEMPAK, so I could be missing something in my argument here.


Thanks,


Warren
