[IDV #AIH-857685]: change in map projection parameters when reading a binary file



Ben,

Sorry that this conversation has not been very clear. Please shutdown all
instances of the IDV. Delete or move the .unidata directory. Download the
nightly IDV. Start the IDV.  From what we can tell, these steps will resolve the
issue. Let us know if they do not.

Please keep us up-to-date on your progress.

Best,

Unidata IDV Support
