[McIDAS #NGY-756997]: FY2C supported?

Hi Valentijn,

> A few questions regarding the support of FY2C in mcidas:
> -Do you know someone at CAMS, Being, as i expect that they have their

Unfortunately, no.  Sorry...

> -What version of McIDAS started supporting this new data, and which
> files are being affected (SATANOT, etc.)?

I am not sure which version of McIDAS first contained support for
FY2C data.  I see entries for FY-2C in v2002's SATANNOT file, however.

> -What can you tell us about the navigation support (georeference) for
> FY2C, is it available in McIDAS and the IDV?

Navigation is available in McIDAS.  I am guessing that it is available
in IDV also.

There is a publically-accessible ADDE server operated by NOAA that has
FY2C data available.  Here is the access information:


I just loaded a channel 2 image (PUB/FY2C-CH2, 10.8 um) image in my
McIDAS-X v2005 session and put a map on top, and the navigation
registration looks good.  According to the AREA file header for
the image I just IMGCOPYied to my machine, the navigation is GMSX
(GMS).  Given this, I would expect that the IDV supports the navigation.
The best proof, however, is trying it for yourself :-)

ADDE access to MSG data was announced at the
AGU Spring 2006 Joint Assembly that was just held in Baltimore,
Maryland USA.  The proceedure is that one will have to register with
EUMETSAT to get a user ID and project number, and sign an agreement
to not relay/share/make available the data until it is at least 24
hours old.  The best way for you to get started on this is to
send an email to Dr. Marianne Koenig <address@hidden>
and ask her how to get setup to access the data.
