Using mcidas, you can make area files using the GOES-16 netcdf files, if you
use the data that's on AWS.

Display of GOES-16 isn't supported in GEMPAK according to the link Unidata sent
out the other day. Only McIDAS-X, McIDAS-V, IDV, and AWIPS2.
It is something I will have to tackle here in a few weeks myself as we haven't
moved to AWIPS2. I would assume that with GEMPAK not being developed anymore at
NCEP (AFAIK) that it would be difficult for Unidata to tackle that likely big
task, but maybe Michael can chime in on that.

Subject: [gembud] Displaying GOES-16 Data
I am successfully ingesting the GOES-16 data but am having difficulty
displaying it. I'm assuming I probably have to run it through (or perhaps
create) some kind of decoder. Has anyone had success that might be able to
provide a few pointers?
