[McIDAS #KUC-159541]: Memory errors with GINI Local Server in McIDAS-X

Hi Clay,

I assume that you are the same Clay Davenport that I used to interact with
at UVa?  If yes, I trust things have been good for you at NOAA!

Ah Ha!  This makes complete sense now!

Do you happen to know what the BRIT -> RR relationship is?  If no, I
can search on the web.

The SATEPSANONE.NESDIS.NOAA.GOV ADDE server has dataset definitions for
both BLTPW and BLPWTM, but neither dataset has any elements


BLPWTM          20    Blended TPW Time composite
BLTPW           20    Blended TPW composite

Thanks for pointing this out.  I have access to the PLR ADDE
server (SATEPSDIST4E.NESDIS.NOAA.GOV);  I am able to check
BLTPW type images:


        Dataset Names of Type: IMAGE in Group: PLR

Name         NumPos   Content
------------ ------   --------------------------------------
BLPWTM          20    Blended TPW Time composite
BLTPW           20    Blended TPW composite
BLTPWANMCIRA    25    24 hrs Blended TPW Anomaly from CIRA
BLTPWCIRA       25    24 hrs CIRA Blended TPW Composite
BLTPW_ANOM_C    25    24 hrs Blended TPW Anomaly from CIRA
BLTPW_GPS       25    24 hrs Blended TPW composite with GPS data
BLTPW_PCT       25    24 hrs Blended TPW Anomaly composite

I see images in BLTPW_GPS and BLTPW_PCT, but no others; these
two datasets may are useful, but not sufficient.

- would it be possible to get some example GINI images from the
  BLTPW_GPS and BLTPW_PCT datasets?

  These would be most helpful!

Comment (for you AND for SSEC MUG folks who are CCed on this exchange):

- one of the challenges for creation of valid calibration blocks
  is that the band number for the BLTPW_GPS images is the same
  as for the BLTPW_PCT images
