[Datastream #KNX-863126]: noaaport/conduit decode (cont.)

Hi Kwan,

> Do we have access to any real-time or near-time METEOSAT images
> through ADDE?

Yes, there are two different servers:

ADDE dataset    Server                       Comment
PUB             SATEPSANONE.NESDIS.NOAA.GOV  6-hourly imagery
MET             SATEPSDIST6E.NESDIS.NOAA.GOV full complement; restricted access

satepsanone.nesdis.noaa.gov is open to the world.  The 6-hourly Meteosat
images they have are the ones that are freely-available to all.

Access to satepsdist6e.nesdis.noaa.gov is restricted to those sites that have
ongoing projects/relationships with NOAA.  Unidata has access to the restricted
NOAA ADDE servers because of the various NOAA projects we have been and
continue to be involved in.

Since you are a NOAA employee, ESPC (the new name for SATEPS) should allow you
access to all of the ADDE servers that they maintain (you must provide the 
address of the machine you will be using). I suggest that you send an email to:

Brian Hughes <address@hidden>

Brian is an active member of the McIDAS Users Group (MUG) at SSEC.  He put me
in touch with the appropriate people to setup ADDE access to the various
ESPC servers several months back.  At the time, those people were:

ESPCoperations <address@hidden>
Ed Ladd <address@hidden>

Ed setup up our access.

For reference, here is the list of ADDE servers and what they supposed
to contain that Brian sent to the MUG mailing list back in February.
Note that the parenthetical comments are Brian's, not mine, and they may
not be valid anymore:

> I see that IO.SCA.UQAM.CA has ME7 but I'm not sure if that means METEOSAT.

It does, but that dataset was never very well maintained.  In fact, I will
likely remove it from the list of Publically Accessible ADDE servers
for the Unidata McIDAS-X v2008 release.

> Does Unidata archive any METEOSAT data?

No, at least not yet.

> Have a nice July 4th.

You too.

Please let me know if the above was what you were looking for.
