Hi Russ,

Yea, well it was a reach ;-)

I knew that there was a better term for what I was trying to describe.

Only the L1B images?  What about for images from things like the
NASA server (nanuk.eosdis.nasa.gov)?

OK.

Very cool.  Is SSEC getting the data in realtime?

Excellent.  When do they hit an addendum?

Cheers,

Tom

re: MODIS bowtie effect, Only the L1B images?

     All L1b MODIS images will have this problem. Any MODIS image that 
doesn't show the bow tie effect has been "rectified" in some way. The 
image projection may stay the same, but the edges have been massaged.

re: bowtie rectification work schedule
    This will probably be implemented in early 2005.


re: are images from Indian satellite in realtime

     No. Jerry ftp's these once a day. We use IMGMAKE to convert them to 
McIDAS AREAs. These images have a bad problem with navigation (ie. there 
isn't any). We had to hack a Meteosat image navigation to get it as 
close as it is now, but its not very good. We are attempting to refine 
the navigation using landmarks (McIDAS auto-navigation).


re: new ADDE servers for the MODIS  SST (Mod28) and >>Aerosol (Mod04) products.

     SST and AER servers will probably go out it the next release. If 
you're interested, I can ask Kathy Strabala if she has these available 
to grab (via ADDE).
