[McIDAS #AWR-703918]: Re: 20080311: McIDAS for Venezuela



Hola Luis,

I apologize for my _very_ late reply to your email!

re:

Yes, I can help.

It depends.  What GOES reception system did you buy?  If it is an SSEC SDI
unit, then it includes the McIDAS ADDE server for the data being ingested.
If it is a Global Imaging reception system, then data from it should be
usable also.  If it is some other system, then it is most likely that software
would need to be developed to support using the data depending on what the
format is.

By the way, where did you get McIDAS?  Is the organization you are with a 
university?

I ask be cause Unidata's license to distribute McIDAS is restricted to 
universities.
SSEC has recently provided us with specific guidelines for the sites we can 
make McIDAS
available to.

> Thanks

No worries.  Again, I apologize for my late reply.

Cheers,

Tom
