Hi Adam Batz,

The GLM data is a very special type of netcdf file, each file contains three 
different types of point data. It is not CF complaint netcdf file. You need
to install a plugin to be able to load and view the this kind of dataset.

First, you need to install the nightly release of the IDV which is version 
5.4u1. Then, install the GLM_L2 plugin under Tools > Plugins Manager, 
Miscellaneous > GLM_L2.jar.

After the installation, there are three new datasource type related to the GLM 
data (group. event, and flash), you need to specify which one you want to view 
when loading the
GLM data.


Let me know if you have any problem.
