[McIDAS #BOM-351955]: non-US university access to Unidata McIDAS

Hi Yoshihiro,

> I am a facult member of the Federal University of Pelotas,
> (Brazil) registered in the unidata, as member of the
> University of Aveiro (Portugal).

We know you :-)

> Since I am using the e-mail from University of Aveiro:
> address@hidden (without suffix *.edu) I am unable to
> download the mcidas-x software.

Download access to software we provide is controlled by the
user's login to our website.  Access to McIDAS is further
controlled by an 'allow' list whose entries are based on
the user's email address.

> Also here, at university of Pelotas, our mail-box has no
> *.edu suffix. So that I would appreciated if could inform
> how to get the software (for research purpose).

In order to let non-.edu users have access to our distribution
of McIDAS, I am required by SSEC to have those users agree to
the following:

  SSEC considers permissible users of the international university community
  to be those who are using McIDAS-X for academic classroom instruction or
  academic research by students related to obtaining a degree. Research 
  and government agencies that use McIDAS-X for meteorological research or
  operations must purchase a license from SSEC for the non-academic use.  Given
  this clarification, and if Unidata users remain within the licensing terms
  that include no re-distribution of any portion of the software, SSEC is 
  to providing this software to the international university Unidata user 

So, we need a clear statement from you that specifies the following:

- you are accessing McIDAS from Unidata for use in a university
- McIDAS must be used for academic classroom instruction or academic research
  by students related to obtaining a degree
- your installation of McIDAS is not for use by a government agency, 
  research institute, or private concern
- you agree that you will not re-distribute any portion of the software

> I would like to install the mcidas in order to analyse
> satellite images I am receiving throughout LDM system.

As soon as you state that your use of Unidata McIDAS will conform to
the items above, we will add your U Aveiro email address to the list that
allows downloading of McIDAS.
