[IDD #SET-184160]: GOES-W AREA Files

Hi Jim,

Quick comment and a couple of questions:

The current GOES-East CONUS coverage channels (0.64um VIS, 6.2um WV, and 10.3um 
are all remapped into the same Lambert Conformal projection as the NEXRAD Level 
national composite radar products that we are creating and distributing in the
IDD FNEXRAD datastream.  I know that all Unidata display and analysis 
support this projection, and, while I a can guarantee it, I think that WXP does

Have you taken a look at the current GOES-East CONUS images? 

If yes, do they suit your purposes?

Further comment:

We are remapping the GOES-East CONUS products into the Lambert Conformal 
upon recommendation of the Unidata User's Group subcommittee that help shape the
content of the Unidata-Wisconsin datastream content.  There was no interest 
voiced in having the GOES-West PACUS images remapped in a similar manner.
