[IDD #PYW-245067]: Data Request



Hi Mark,

re:

> West and East area files.

The Unidata Internet Data Distribution (IDD) system provides the NEXRAD Level 
III
products as delivered by the NWS NOAAPort satellite broadcast.  Also included
in that broadcast are GOES-East/West image sectors that have been remapped into
conical projections (done by the NWS for use in their forecast offices in 
AWIPS).
We also provide GOES-East/West image sectors in a different IDD datastream, 
UNIWISC.
These products, however, are not full scans or full resolution, so they can not
be viewed as being unaltered.

We (Unidata Program Center/UCAR) are funded by NSF to support university access
to and use of geoscientific data.  We do not provide realtime data feeds 
directly to
commercial or private entities unless there is some sort of quid pro quo benefit
for the Unidata community.

It is possible that one or more Unidata university sites may be interested in
feeding you the NEXRAD Level III data from NOAAPort using our LDM/IDD 
technologies.
This arrangement would be something that you would and the site(s) would have to
agree on yourselves.

I'm sorry we can't be of more help...

Cheers,

Tom
