[IDD #SJH-789523]: LDM - High Resolution visible images

Hi Eric,

No worries.

The best way to do this is to use the LDM 'notifyme' utility to list out
the products from the datastream desired.  For instance, try the following:

<as 'ldm'>
notifyme -vxl- -f NIMAGE -o 3600 -h idd.cise-nsf.gov

The listing will look something like:

The product IDs for the NIMAGE datastream are pretty clear:

GOES-12 -> GOES-East
VIS     -> visible image ( 0.65 um)
3.9     -> short wave IR ( 3.9  um)
WV      -> water vapor   ( 6.[58] um) (depends on GOES-East vs GOES-West
Ir      -> thermal IR    (10.7 um)
13.3    -> long wave IR  (13.3 um)

One ~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf request for GOES-East VIS images only would look like:

request NIMAGE "GOES-12/VIS" upstream.feed.host

There are others that would also work depending on which products you want.
Use the '-p' (pattern) flag on 'notifyme' to test your patterns:

notifyme -vxl- -f NIMAGE -o 3600 -h idd.cise-nsf.gov -p 'GOES-12/VIS'

Refine the pattern value to get just the set of images you want and then
use that pattern in the ~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf request line.  After making
the addition/change to ldmd.conf, you will need to stop and restart your
LDM for the change to take effect.

OK.  You should be aware that GEMPAK has a script that can be run to generate
ldmd.conf and pqact.conf entries.  Please review the GEMPAK HomePage for
