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

I never sent you the IMGOLAY command that would do the image combination.
What did you use to combine the visible satellite and effective radius

OK.  Please provide me with the listing of this enhancement.
What I would like is the output of:

What was your MAP invocation?

By default, MAP does not draw county outlines.  I sent you an example of
a MAP invocation that would display the MS (Mississippi), AL (Alabama)
and GA (Georgia) in a previous email.

See above; I do not know what you used to combine the images, so I cannot
comment on what you are or are not seeing.

Please ask your professor or, better yet, departmental computer system
administrator how you can make the images I have requested available by

Interesting.  I don't see a question here...

See above.
