The new procedure for getting Unidata software is started by someone at your university signing up as a Unidata site. You can get to the registration portion of our web in a variety of ways, but the easiest for you in this case is to go to the Undiata McIDAS-X 7.80 HomePage: Unidata HomePage http://www.unidata.ucar.edu Software http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/Software.html McIDAS http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/packages/mcidas Version 7.80 http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/packages/mcidas/780/ and then click on the 'Register as a Unidata User'. After you are registered as a Unidata user, you can go to the download page and start downloading the various pieces of Unidata McIDAS-X 7.80: README mcinstall mcinet7.8.sh mcidasx780.tar.Z You should download this to a properly prepared 'mcidas' account on your system. This account must have access to at least 300 MB of disk just for the McIDAS package itself. Disk space for data files will be in addition to this, and will typically live in a file system other than /home/mcidas. Please don't hesitate to ask questions if you have problems with the download/installation/configuration process for Unidata McIDAS. Use and uspport of the package is much easier if it is installed correctly in the first place. Tom Yoksas
