20030810: wavelengths

Mcidas users,

I'm trying to find a way to extract the wavelength for each band from
satellite area files inside a mcidas program.  Does anyone know of a way
to do this?

The information you are looking for is found in the file SATBAND.  Check 
out the function gsatxt in imglist.pgm this retrieves the band 
information from SATBAND.

    There is a text file in your mcidas/data directory called SATBAND. 
This file contains the wave length of the channels for each instrument 
supported by McIDAS.

     There is a McIDAS data file SATBAND which is in ascii and
could be read for this sort of information.  But it's better suited
for image labeling than for calibration.  These are nominal wavelengths,
not measured wave numbers, and lack precision.
