So you are assuming that all files in all directories matching /export/home/met171/giova/area/*/* are images in AREA file format. Is this what you intended? >I can display and do graphics for 4km IR and 8km WV images with this >naming convention: IR_010710_0800, WV_010710_0800 Yes, but how are you separating these images from each other? With the dataset definition listed above, you would have to specify a dataset position number to get a particular image. It seems to me that a better way to create datasets is to organize your images by type (VIS, IR, WV, etc.) and make separate datasets with each type. Something like: DSSERVE ADD MYIMG/VIS AREA DIRFILE=/export/home/met171/giova/area/VIS/VIS_* DSSERVE ADD MYIMG/IR AREA DIRFILE=/export/home/met171/giova/area/IR/IR_* DSSERVE ADD MYIMG/WV AREA DIRFILE=/export/home/met171/giova/area/WV/WV_* etc. >I can display 1km VIS images with this kind of names: VIS_010710_1555 >but MAP says " Unable to find a NAV start point in image" This is very strange. What does an IMGLIST for the VIS_* images look like? >I can't display any of those images, and I can't even get info from >IMGLIST!! and of course the processes IMGDISP and agetserv sit and do >nothing > >1km (band?) NCAL_010710_2030 >4km VIS VIS_010714_0200 >4km (band?) LCLD2_010714_0630 Do you mean that you can't display images in these files? If not, I would guess that they are not in AREA format, or they might have been damaged in the FTP process you used to get them from the NPS. >All happens regardless the options and keywords I'm using, eg >IMGDISP MYIMG/AREA.32, for defaults Again, the files in question may not be in AREA format. >I got those images from Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey. I asked for >for some more infos, but the guy is not return my emails. Would it be possible for me to either FTP the files you have so I can take a look, or login as you and see what I can see in your environment? re: try SF 1 ERASE MAP NA >this works I can see the North America Map, but what I said unfortunately >doesn't change! sigh! :( OK. re: also try DATALOC ADD GINIWEST PAPAGAYO.UNL.EDU DSINFO I GINIWEST IMGDISP GINIWEST/GW4KIR STA=KLAX MAG=-3 REFRESH='EG;MAP H' >this works fine!! ;) This further reinforces the notion that the image files that you are unable to look at are either not in AREA format or are somehow damaged. >let me know if need something more or to come in and take a look at our >system. the images are still under my homepage The quickest thing for me to do is login as you so I can run McIDAS in your environment. This way I could quickly determine if the files you are trying to look at are good or bad. Tom
