I slogged through a number of the examples listed in: http://www.cira.colostate.edu/ramm/visit/istpds/awips/lookup.html and noted that some did not have the information needed to recreate them in an easily used format (e.g., the one enhancement that Arlene really wanted had the relationship between temperature regimes and RGB gun levels, not brightnesses and RGB values). Are there McIDAS .ET versions of the enhancements that CIRA uses that I can grab (by anonymous FTP, for instance)? If so, I will include them in my McIDAS distribution. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide... Tom Yoksas
