[McIDAS #BJT-176673]: Question about displaying the Satellite Image On McIDAS-X



Hi:

re:

This invocation is specifically asking for display of two images via the ALL=1 2
keyword; the first in frame 1 and the second in frame 2.  The behavior of 
IMGDISP
when using the ALL= keyword is explained in the McIDAS-X Users Guide:

If you want to display all images in the time range of 19:02 to 20:45, 
inclusive,
you would need to:

- know how many images there are

  Your IMGLIST listing shows that there are 15 images in this range.

- configure your McIDAS-X session to have enough frames to display the
  number of images you want to display (i.e., your session would have
  to have at least 15 frames if you want to display them all)

- you will then need to specify the ALL= keyword to display all of the images

  Example:

IMGDISP G13/VIS27APR11 DAY=11117 TIME=19:02 20:45 LATLON=0 70 MAG=-10 -20 
SF=YES ALL=1 15 REFRESH='EG;MAP SAT'

NB: you will undoubtedly want to modify the MAG= keyword values to focus in
on the location you want.  Setting the location for the center of the image
display can be done by specifying the LATLON= keyword, the STA= keyword, or
the LINELE keyword.  Since the default placement for the LINELE= use is
upper left, you would probably want to include the PLACE=CENTER keyword
to make sure that your load is centered where you want.

Cheers,

Tom
