[ldmMcidas #GZG-682445]: Local Grid file

Hi Paul,

Dave did pretty much all of the installs and configurations.  All I have done
so far is build ldm-mcidas v2012 on the new climate machine,

A GRID or a GRID file?

You say that you created GRID.21... how did you create this?


This is line says to display the first grid in the GRID file GRID0021.
Depending on how GRID0021 is created/supposed to be created, the GRID
file might live in /home/data/mcidas or the $MCDATA directory for the
user running the GRDDISP command.

The data set definition for MYDATA that is delivered with Unidata McIDAS
defines MYDATA/GRIDS as:

MYDATA/GRIDS             GRID  GRID 1-9999           All gridded data in GRID 

Looking at GRID file numbers being created by McIDAS-XCD decoding on
adde.ucar.edu shows that no GRID file named GRID0021 is created by XCD
decoding.  This strongly suggests that GRID0021 is a file that you 
created locally.  To figure out where it is/should be, I would have to
review the script(s) you are running to do processing.  I think it
is likely that the grid in GRID0021 is being created by an objective
analysis of some POINT field (e.g., T, etc.).  The first place I would
look, therefore, is whatever process(es) you are running that does
objective analysis of POINT data.
