[McIDAS #MHL-637032]: question about imgremap

Hi Ying,

No worries.

It could be that the IMGREMAP invocation line I included was incorrect.
I just changed it to:

I think it might have been my including SSIZE=ALL instead of SIZE=ALL

The McIDAS RECTilinear projection should be a simple Lat,Lon grid, and I as
far as I know, this is the most common projection in GeoTIFF image files.

No worries.

Hmm...  I believe that SSEC used ArcGIS to test the display of the GeoTIFF
images created by the ADDE GeoTIFF output server.  I will take a look at
one of the images created by the newly modified script in ArcGIS when I get
into work (still at home at the moment).

By the way, after my modification of the ~ldm/mcrunNEXRAD.sh script, the
size of the most recently created GeoTIFF image is 1553933.  Before this
change, it was about 300 KB like you noted.  Can you take a look at the
new images and see if they look OK?

I just looked at the newly created NEXRCOMP0003.tif image in the 
Eye of GNOME 2.10.0 image viewer on my Fedora Core 4 Linux system, and
(aside from coloration), the image looks correct.  So, the image being
created is, at least, a valid TIFF one.

I don't think so, but I will need to check with SSEC (or read the source
code) to make sure.

> Thanks again,

Please let me know if the new images are still unreadably by ArcGIS.
