>From: "Wayne Bresky" <address@hidden> >Organization: Cornell >Keywords: 200105161402.f4GE2Jp07535 ADDE Wayne, >Can you tell me if there is a McIDAS decoder for the GRIB data that >comes across on the HDS feed. Yes. It is part of the McIDAS-XCD portion of the Unidata McIDAS-X distribution. Information on building, installing, and configuring McIDAS-XCD is available in the McIDAS-X online pages under: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/packages/mcidas/770/index.html Start with the Install option in the top frame and look for: Building, Installing, and Configuring McIDAS-XCD http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/packages/mcidas/770/mcx/mcidas-xcd.html >I know one exists for GEMPAK (which we >have installed), but I haven't seen anything for McIDAS. Again, the set of decoders in McIDAS-X is the XCD set of routines. >According to >the web page there used to be one (gunrv2) but not any more? gunrv2 is an ldm-mcidas routine that was used for decoding gridded data that was distributed in the Unidata-Wisconsin datastream. It became archaic as soon as folks could decode their own data received by NOAAPORT broadcast/or the Unidata IDD. >I'm a >little confused. Should I only be looking at the forecast data with >GEMPAK? Not unless you want to. McIDAS-XCD decodes the full complement of data accessible in the NOAAPORT streams just as the several decoders packaged with XCD. Please let me know if you run into any snags.
