[McIDAS #YUS-533577]: Accessing archived NEXRAD Level III images in ADDE

Hi Randy,

> i have been archiving the nexrad data from noaapoint
> for several years. As you know you can display the
> realtime nexrad data which is located on our noaapxcd
> box using the mcidas (imglist,imgdisp) commands.


> However, the archive which has files named like
> lwx_20071009_1003.n0r
> can not displayed.

McIDAS doesn't care about the names of files, so the name is
not an issue.

> What i did was,
> DSSERVE ADD RJA/NX AREA DIRFILE='/d2/nexrad/lwx*.n0r'
> returns no data.
> Does this mean they are not really AREA files?

Yes, exactly.  The DSSERVE command should be:

DSSERVE ADD RJA/NX NEXR DIRFILE='/d2/nexrad/lwx*.n0r'

> or does it mean the only way i can display the
> archived data is to copy them back onto my noaapxcd
> box in their appropriate directories.

Absolutely no!

> thanks,

No worries.
