You can create a file of locations using the formats listed at: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/IDV/docs/userguide/data/LocationXml.html You can load these files in as "Locations" Data Source Type through the file chooser. If you want to keep a permanent list that is available through the Displays->Locations menu, create a file in ~/.unidata/idv/DefaultIdv called userstations.xml using the Locations XML format. You can have multiple station tables in a file using a format like: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <stationtables> <stationtable name="SubsetA" category="My Custom Stations"> (list of stations for subset A) </stationable> <stationtable name="SubsetB" category=My Custom Stations"> (list of stations for subset B) </stationtable> </stationtables> This will show up in the Display->Locations menu as a top menu called My Custom Stations and sub menus SubsetA and SubsetB. I'll update the web page above to add in this information. Don Murray Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: UUA-646727 Department: Support IDV Priority: Normal Status: Open
