[McIDAS #XYA-857906]: RE: Cloudsat data in mcidas

Have you looked at the COMBINE command in McIDAS?  The idea behind COMBINE
is to combine the displays of bands loaded in different frames into a
combined, 24-bit image in a separate window.

The following is the listing of a BATCH file I created to create an RGB 
composite
of Meteosat-9 imagery:

LOGON xxx xxxx
IMGDISP EUM_AD/M9 1 MAG=-5 LATLON=0 0 BAND=1 TIME=%1
IMGDISP EUM_AD/M9 2 MAG=-5 LATLON=0 0 BAND=2 TIME=%1
IMGDISP EUM_AD/M9 3 MAG=-5 LATLON=0 0 BAND=3 TIME=%1
COMBINE 0 3 2 1
LOGOFF

(NB: I have a logon to the EUMETSAT ADDE server so I can get the realtime
Meteosat-9 data; you would need to get your own logon or have a different
source for Meteosat-9 images).

Cheers,

Tom
