20011022: Combining Images



Hello,

I'm trying to find a way to use mcidas to combine 2 or more satellite
images from different satellites and display them on the same frame.
I used IMGREMAP with MERGE=YES but it just seems to overlap one image on
the frame with the other.  I wanted something that would use the best
(lowest) satellite viewing angle when deciding which part of the 2+
images are displayed.

Doug,

I just talked to Dave Santek about this. Dave may have a source for
an application which does this. He was just headed to a class so he won't
be able to get back to you for a while.

Douglas,

A quick method (not using satellite viewing angles) is to use IMGOPER.
Use IMGREMAP to generate 2 or more satellite images that have the same
projection.  Now use IMGOPER image1 image2 image..n destination_image
FORM=CMIN ZERO=DATA SIZE=ALL Another possibility is:  IMGOPER image1
image2 image..n destination_image FORM=CMAX ZERO=DATA SIZE=ALL

Dealing with satellite view angles is much more complicated.  There is
a routine in McIDAS-XRD version 7.8 called cldtopo.pgm.  This program
contains a lot of the code to determine the sun location based on a
given lat/lon.  If you could input the lat/lon subpoint of the
satellites (or possibly get it from the navigation routines) you might
be able to do some quick geometry to get exactly what you want.

I'm getting some code from Fred Mosher that I'll either put in XRD or MDF
that I think does some of what you want.

All,

I just moved Ricks CLDTOPO program into the MDF. I will take a shot at
making this application ADDE active tonight.
