Hi Ricardo,

>I just send the email to my group in Colombia regarding LDM and McIDAS.  
>I will wait for their response.

I got the CC and read through your email.  I think that it is a good
introduction to some of the basic capabilities that McIDAS offers.

>I hope you liked the examples I set up in:

I liked your examples very much.

>I could not get that FRMOLAY to work, so I created animations with the 
>IR and VIS bands.

When I get the chance, I will look into why we couldn't get FRMOLAY to
work with regular satellite data.

>I wanted to share with you a preprint of the GIS we are developing in

Very nice!

Hmm... Creating a loop of images in McIDAS should be easy enough.
Each frame would need to be captured individually, however, since
FRMSAVE does not have the  option of saving an animated GIF.

>I have attached the two scripts that I am using to create and update the

This email did not contain any attachments.  Can you send them again?

>Notice that in goesSetup.sh I had to write a line of code for each 
>image, while in goesUpdate.sh I could use the bash loop syntax to rotate 
>my images.  How can I get loops to work after the mcenv line?

>P.S.  I want to thank you again for the McIDAS workshop.  It sure was an 
>enlightening experience.

As you noted in the email you sent to the list, McIDAS can be daunting
at first.  The good news is that it gets a lot easier the more you use
the package.
