Assuming that you make the local copy of EXAMPLE.NAM in the /home/mcidas/data directory, your McIDAS session should have been able to find the file. Please try the following: <login as 'mcidas'> cd workdata dmap.k LOCAL.NAM Does this say that the file is found or not (please send the output)? If yes, then redirect.k REST LOCAL.NAM should work with no problems. If not, we need to figure out why it is not working. LOCAL.NAM correctly created in /home/mcidas/data should be found by McIDAS by virtue of the MCPATH you have defined: MCPATH=/home/mcidas/workdata:/home/mcidas/data:/home/mcidas/help The purpose of MCPATH is to tell McIDAS routines a sequence of directories to search when looking for data and ancillary data files. /home/mcidas/data is the second directory in your MCPATH, so /home/mcidas/data/LOCAL.NAM should have been found. This is an important issue. If the MCPATH definition is not being used correctly, we need to figure out why and correct the problem before moving on. On a subject related to the satellite imagery that you want to use from GFSC, you mentioned that you have a Fortran program (that you compiled with g77) that you can use to extract the image values from the original TIFF file. Can you provide me the source code you have for doing this? I am interested in using that code along with some other to create a McIDAS application that takes a GSFC as input the TIFF satellite image file and the goes.nav file and outputs a McIDAS AREA file. Such an application would be all that you need to get going, and I could contribute it back to the McIDAS community. Tom
