Hi Robert,

>I am trying to use IMGPROBE to show cloud top temps on the Global
>composite I am making on newpsn.nsbf.nasa.gov.    This is the image
>where I take a topo map, dice it up, then remap satellite into those, then
>merge the image back together.   I have no problem using:
>BAR SU=IRTEMP to get a bar whihc shows temperature correctly.

This is because the stretch sets the mapping of BRIT to TEMP for BAR.

>Also when I open the image using the Unidata GUI, the status bar
>at the bottom shows BRIT and TEMP and they are correct.

This is because the SSEC and Unidata GUIs use the fixed two slope
relationship between BRIT and TEMP.  Neither interrogate the image
to get the TEMPs. Both indicate approx. TEMP values in display
readouts.

Yes.  Word 56 (zero based) in the AREA file header is set to 'PRD '
in your images.  Word 56 overrides word 50 (don't ask me why).  Word
56 is set to PRD since the TOPO images you are using are setup that
way.  The solution is easy, set word 56 to zero using LWU:

LWU POKE AREA1234 0 56

>Please leave the following out of the archive as I don't have access limited

>The image is in ULDB/GLOBAL

I found that word 56 was 'PRD ' by copying a portion of one of these
images to a local dataset (MYDATA/IMAGES) and then used LWU to list
out values:
