[McIDAS #IMU-985792]: Fw: Re: global mosaic



Hi Randy,

I apologize for not responding to your email earlier.  I started to
reply, but got pulled off onto other things and forgot to pick up the
thread.

OK.  This should be straightforward enough...

Comments:

- (minor) the ZERO= keyword is archaic -- it is no longer documented in the 
online
  help or User's Guide for IMGOPER.  Even though the code still has provision
  for ZERO=, I would use the MISS= keyword instead so that future changes
  to IMGOPER would not make your procedure invalid (e.g., MISS=NONE)

- (minor) my gut reaction is that the function (FORM=) should be CMAX, not CMIN
  but that is TBD

- (major) the reason that your composite is not coming out like you want is due
  to the way you are creating global views of the various pieces.  What you
  need to do is specify the LATLON= for the destination image in the original
  IMGREMAP invocations so that the center position of each piece is the same.

  Example: specify the center point of the eventual composite as 0N, 0W:

IMGREMAP GOES12 GLOB.1 PRO=RECT RES=16 SIZE=1100 1224 LATLON=0 0
...

  Do the same sort of thing for each piece.  When you do the image combination
  using IMGOPER, you will get the global coverage you are after.

> thanks,

No worries.
Cheers,

Tom
