[IDD #UOZ-684486]: Fwd: IRADS data for academic use

Hi Arun,

First, we apologize for taking so long to get back to you on your

> Hi, can you help me get started with an academic feed for NEXRAD data?

Yes, certainly.

We can setup the needed LDM ALLOW for you to REQUEST and IDD feed for
the NEXRAD2 (full volume scan data) datastream.  What we need from you

- the fully qualified hostname and external IP address of the UMass machine
  that will be running our LDM software

  NB: in order to feed you any of the IDD datastreams, there will need to
  be both forward and reverse DNS for the machine on which you will run
  the LDM.

- a list of datastreams that you want to REQUEST (in addition to the
  NEXRAD2 feed, of course)

You will need to identify the *nix (Unix/Linux) machine on which you
will run the LDM; insure that there is forward and reverse DNS for this
machine; register with our web site; download, and then build and install
the LDM.

After doing the above, we will advise you on the best way to setup processing
of the NEXRAD Level 2 products you will receive in the NEXRAD2 data feed.
What will need to be done on your side is a bit complicated by the
volume scans being broken up into pieces and those pieces being sent.
You will need to setup reconstitution of the full volume scans on
your machine; this is what we will advise you on.
