Re: Images for the WWW

Hi Robert,

I use the IDV to automatically generate displays like this:
http://www.ssec.wisc.edu/~daves/GFS/yesamsu/chop.pgbanl.fnl.2003081100.jpg.gif

from GRIB files using IDV bundles and UNIX scripts.

I certainly don't claim to be the expert at this, but I found a way to do it that works for me!

Hi,

Is there anyone on the group using IDV to create numerical model
imagery for the web?

Having fought and failed using GrADS (I`m technicaly challenged and no
linux guru!), I came across IDV hoping it might be a little easier
being that it is windows friendly(ish).

I run a community based website in Maine, and we are looking to create
custom numerical model charts from the freely available grib data,
preferably automated/stand-alone via scripting, batch files or
whatever it needs.

Before I get too involved in using IDV, would this software be what I
am looking for? If yes, I could probably do with some tips and advice
at some stage. Maybe those experienced in this area, we could chat
off-group via email, save me making a pest of myself on the group!

Thankyou.
