[IDV #PNW-510251]: NOAA Profiler Plots



> Yuan,

Laura,

You should be able to download and install the latest the nightly build, and 
run the IDV on CAP data, select the data source type as "CDM netCDF profiler 
files", you can select one or multiple files, at this moment, only very basic 
display available, don't have any other feature you talked about here. Somehow, 
the NPN data is different from our IDD stream and not working yet, maybe 
another kind of profiler data.

> Will IDV be able to read each profiler in individually? Also, MADIS runs QC 
> on the data they receive through CAP and NPN. Will there be a way to select 
> the QC level of the data we want to plot in the IDV?

Can you give me a detail explanation of using QC level?

These not available currently, but will consider to add in future.

> Let me know if you have any questions on the files.
