[IDV #XKC-503786]: output of GOES netcdf is not georeferenced

         If you are getting those image from a ADDE server, I will not be 
surprise to see this kind of result. I am guessing that some of the information 
like projection of the area file is not saved into the netCDF file, and the 
image projections might be very different from those available in the netCDF 
library. I need more research to figure out the exact reason behind the scene.
> Am I missing something obvious?  I'd appreciate and help you could provide.

One suggestion is to get those satellite image from TDS server (the file is in 
gini format), and you can type in the following link in the catalog input:


I believe these gini files can be output to the netcdf and  load into ArcGIS.
