[netCDFDecoders #ERD-441589]: NIDS and MDV decoder?

.nids mosaic file may not be the same thing as the level3 radar products. If 
you are lucky you can use the IDV to open the dataset and export the display to 
the netCDF file. But, this netCDF may not be the one the MATLAB can take. I 
wonder what kind of processing and algorithm you are working on, you may 
consider to run the IDV to do the job, I can provide some help.
