Hi Mekonnen,

No worries.

Equal grid... meaning what exactly?

How are you transforming the Lat,Lon positions from the original GVAR
navigation into an "equal grid map"?  This can be done easily in McIDAS
using the IMGREMAP command specifying the RECT (rectilinear)
projection.  Once the data has been put into this projection, your IDL
calculations would be straightforward, AND the reimportation back into
McIDAS AREAs would be simple since MAKNAV supports RECTilinear projection
directly.  The comment about the data needing to be in integer binary
still holds since MAKEAREA supports binary not ASCII data.

Glad to help when I can.
