[IDV #TLU-805180]: Background/basemaps



David,

We are not sure what you mean when you say the MSR maps no longer exist. The 
dynamic "Topographic Map" background is available although the 
http://msrmaps.com server has been acting flaky leading to timeout errors in 
the IDV. (This problem is not in our control).  These workshop sections may 
help: 
http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/idv/release/nightly/docs/workshop/datadisplays/gis/WMS.html,
 
http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/idv/release/nightly/docs/workshop/datadisplays/gis/DEM.html.
 The second one deals with DEM data which you would rather avoid, but perhaps 
you can bring in the topographic relief from your model and save it in the 
cache as the exercise suggests. Let us know if this is satisfactory.

Best Wishes,

Unidata IDV Support
