Thanks, Yuan and Don!

It sounds like what I'm trying to do may not be possible in the IDV
right now, but just to make sure before turning this over to my poor NCL
skills - here's another question/option:

If I use the data transect display that docks in the dashboard, I can
plot precip vs. horizontal distance (top image in the attachment) --
it's only in the actual Transect View separate window that the 2D rain
field becomes a problem and goes to a flat line since it doesn't have a
height coordinate.  I'd now like to simply plot different precip fields
against each other (all vs. horizontal distance - ignore
terrain/altitude for now). Can I add more than one precip field/file to
the data transect view type seen in the attached?

Unfortunately, no. The Cross-Section control only allows one parameter per display. The underlying framework supports displays with multiple parameters (e.g. the Data Probe/Time Series control), but that type of functionality would have to be implemented in the Cross Section control. Shouldn't be too hard, but it's not trivial either.

Thanks again very much,

Don

    Hi Kelly,
                In general, you should be able to do the mutiple "Data
    Transect"
    in the Transect View display. The trick is to click on the "Transect
    View"
    first before create the "Data Transect" display. In your case, it is
    very
    tricky because the precipitation is 2D and has no vertical
    coordinate. You
    can only see a color line on the bottom in the transect view display.

    If you want two transects with different vertical axes mapped to value
    on the same plot, that's not possible in the IDV at this point.  The
    transect display only maps to height/pressure (since that's what is was
    designed for).

    Hallo,

    I am fairly new to IDV but I have to admire the capabilities of the
    system.
    However, I am facing a small problem when trying to visualize the
    aerological profile from the RAOB station called Prostejov (located
    in the
    Czech Republic, ID 11747). It is not available at any of the ADDE
    servers.
    Is there any way how to solve or workaround the problem and have this
    station available for the visualization? This station can be viewed
    also at
    the page http://weather.uwyo.edu/upperair/sounding.html but the IDV
    visualization is much better. If someone could add the station to
    the ADDE
    servers' station database (or contact a person who is competent to
    do it),
    it would be the most straightforward way to solve the issue.

    With best regards

    Milan Salek

    Just a complement for my question:
    The RAOB station database is available here:
    http://www.wmo.int/pages/prog/www/ois/volume-a/vola-home.htm, the
    Excel file
    is here:
    http://cao-ntcr.mipt.ru/all_doc/c4/raraxls/rara2013.xls

    The missing station is Prostejov, ID number 11747
