I _AM_ envious!!! >I want to use Mcidas when I am there but logging in to >Boulder and then displaying the images in Norway would be painfully >slow. Is there any problem with me installing Mcidas on a machine at the >institue in Norway? There should be no problem. Over the years we have gotten specific permission from the director of SSEC (Bob Fox at the time) for users to install McIDAS on machines outside of their domain when they are on sabbatical, etc. Even though Bob is no longer the director of SSEC, I am sure that his guidance on matters like this still holds, so you can install McIDAS for your research on a suitable machine at the Norwegian Institute for Air Research. >It's not a US university so I'm not sure if that is >a problem. But I will still be employed by the University of Colorado >while I will be in Norway and will be working on U.of Colorado research. My conversations with Bob were focused on situtations exactly like the one you are now describing. Please feel free to use McIDAS on your sabbatical (junket ;-). If folks at the Norwegian Institute for Air Research are interested in McIDAS, they will need to contact SSEC to get licensed for its use _unless_ they have a degree granting component as one of their primary activities. In that case, they might be allowed to use Unidata McIDAS, but that would need to be explored if/when the time comes. >I won't need an LDM, as I would just bring archived Mcidas data with me >from the USA on DVDs. OK, sounds good. >Please let me know what you think I think there is no problem. I just looked at the Norwegian Institute for Air Research's web page... which location are you going to? Also, I see that they are involved in a project with Vietnam. We are supplying realtime data through the IDD to the National Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology in Hanoi. I wonder if the NILU (their acronym) has dealings with that group? P.S. Can I stowaway in your luggage ;-) Cheers, Tom -- NOTE: All email exchanges with Unidata User Support are recorded in the Unidata inquiry tracking system and then made publicly available through the web.
