Hi Mekonnen,

re:
>This is a reminder that I am eagerly waiting for your response.

I apologize for not getting back to you sooner.  I was out of town
the end of last week through the weekend and had meetings for most
of the day today.

Are you talking about geostationary imagery or imagery from polar
orbiters?

IMGLIST can list out two times for geostationary satellite imagery:

- nominal time
- time of the start of the scan

The start time for the image is listed when you include the FORM=ALL
keyword sequence on the invocation command line.

The only way to get the time of any pixel is to calculate it knowing
the scan start time and the scan rate.  I will need to check with
the folks at SSEC to find out where this information is available
in images.

>(2) The result of my analysis would be one map (which has the same lat/lon

Do you mean that you want to have a file that contains the time of each
pixel in the image?  Is this what you are referring to as a 'map'
in:

Maybe I'm being dense, but I am not really sure what you are looking to
create.  Can you explain this to me a little more?

>Thank you very much for your remarkable help,

Again, I apologize for not getting to your email before now.

Cheers,

Tom
