Hi Shivani,

>I have the Kalpana data in raw format. I tried the following command
>to conv> ert it into McIDAS Area Format.

>IMGMAKE ivhrr_kal_d20061026_s0006.raw MY/AREAS.1 1408 1408 PROFILE=KALPANAIR

The XRD IMGMAKE utility will write the data values from the input file
to the output dataset.  In order to add navigation to the output
dataset element, you must describe the navigation using the MAKNAV= or
NFILE= keywords.  since you did not include the contents of your
profile file KALPANAIR, we have no way of knowing if it contains
navigation information.

For reference, Here are the portions of the IMGMAKE online help that
talks about MAKNAV= and NFILE=:

 * NFILe=file format <parms>| source LALO navigation file name and format
                              BINary or ASCii; see Remarks (def=X BIN)

 * MAKNAV=proj <parms> | make a navigation block based on a geographic
          projection, see Remarks (def=no projection)

The Remarks: section has additional information:

   MAKNAV= creates navigation entry for the destination image based on a
   geographic map projection. Available navigation types with associated
   parameters are:
      proj  parms

         orient - ascending(+1)/descending(-1) pass (def=+1)
         flip   - inverted image flag (0-normal/1-flipped) (def=0)

     Use the NFILE keyword to create a LALO navigation from an input
     file which contains a latitude and longitude (west negative) for
     for each image element.
     ASCII type nav file: 1 lat/lon per text line

              lap - latitude starting char position on a text line
              lal - latitude max char length
              lop - longitude starting char position on a text line
              lol - longitude max char length
              skip - number of text header lines to skip
     BINARY type nav file: 2x2D (lat/lon) array of 4byte floats

Without navigation information MAP will not know how to draw the map

Please check your profile file to make sure that it contains
information necessary to navigate your image.  If it does not, you must
add it.  This may or may not be possible depending on the projection of
your original image.
