Hi all-- just wondering if there is a McIDAS program that will do image-to-image comparisons? I am not talking about remapping image A into image B's projection, or in some other way forcing the images to be coincident; rather, I've simply got 2 images of any projection and coverage, and I want to compare them objectively. We here at CIMSS would find such a program very useful. From what I can see, IMGOPER and IMGPROBE, and the XRD routine ASTAT come the closest to what I'm looking for. Also, the program needs to be ADDE-based-- I don't want to have to IMGCOPY one image to my computer before doing the comparison. Perhaps somebody out there has already done the job, or has some software that "almost" does the job. If the program doesn't already exist, I plan on putting one together and making it available for XRD. Thank you!

Hi Jim, I can't resist saying that image comparison from ADDE fits very well into VisAD, and could probably be done in Unidata's IDV via a Python script. Perhaps this task could be a use case for the McIDAS V effort. For a task like this, VisAD/IDV combines McIDAS's smarts about navigation and units with the easy scripting of Matlab/IDL. Cheers, Bill
