[McIDAS #GHF-649340]: Question about creating another GROUP/Descriptor for IR



Hi Rod,

re:

> images to the archive section.

I am not sure what you mean...

- I think you mean that you downloaded images from the URL you listed

- what "archive section"?

re:
> The question is how do I view/upload these images on MCIDAS-X.

The files listed in the URL that you include represent two different
things: satellite images in McIDAS AREA file format (the files ending
in '.BAND_04'), and XML files that have some useful information about
the images of the same date/time (the files ending in '.meta').

You can define a dataset for the files that are McIDAS images in AREA
format using the DSSERVE command in McIDAS.  Here is one example:

- assuming that you download the images (files with the '.BAND_04' suffix)
  to the /home/rod/mcidas/data/CLASS directory, you can create a
  dataset with group name NCAT and descriptor name GOES13IR as follows
  in McIDAS:

  DSSERVE ADD NCAT/GOES13IR AREA DIRFILE=/home/rod/mcidas/data/CLASS/*.BAND_04 
"GOES-13 10.7 um Images from Class

After defining the dataset, verify that your definition was viable (i.e., no 
typos
and the images actually are McIDAS AREA files):

  IMGLIST NCAT/GOES13IR.ALL

  You should get a listing like:

IMGLIST NCAT/GOES13IR.ALL
Image file directory listing for:NCAT/GOES13IR
 Pos Satellite/         Date       Time      Center   Band(s)
     sensor                                 Lat  Lon

   4  G-13 IMG      27 APR 11117  20:25:00    32   87 4
IMGLIST: done

re:
> Thanks!!

No worries.

Remember to review the built-in HELP for DSSERVE if you run into
any snags creating/using the ADDE dataset:
