[IDV #VVG-632378]: Unable to view IDV KML in Google Earth



Greetings John,

Would you mind uploading the GRIB file?

http://motherlode.ucar.edu/repository/alias/idvupload

Don't worry about filling out any of the information - I'll
be looking for it. Just make sure to upload the file using
the "Choose File" button shown next to the Resources
input.

Also, when dealing with WRF output, it's best to
post-process the data in order to destagger the grids.
The IDV can handle the staggered grids, but it increases
the computation time due to the interpolation that needs
to occur.

Cheers,

Sean
