I have developed and deployed in recent addenda to Unidata McIDAS ADDE
servers for imagery data in GINI format.  With these servers, a conversion
of a file from GINI to AREA is as simple as an IMGCOPY from a GINI
dataset to an AREA dataset.  The conversion is implicit in the server
transaction process.  Of course, the direct access to imagery in
GINI format allows Unidata McIDAS-X users to view/manipulate/animate/etc
the data directly.

Here is some information to pass along to whoever at UK is responsible
for installing/updating Unidata McIDAS:

>Thanks for your help.

You are welcome.  Please let whoever needs to setup the ADDE access to
GINI imagery that I am standing by to lend a hand if/when needed.
