[McIDAS #MBP-359564]: Script to retreive SSEC Openarchive AREA files

Hi Kevin,

re: getting archive images from Feb 11,12 2001 from the SSEC archive

I wrote a script named getgoesarchive.sh and left it in the
$MCDATA directory of the 'mcidas' account (/home/mcidas/workdata)
on derecho.  The script grabs every VIS (0.65 um), WV (6.8 um) and
IR (10.7 um) image for the day specified on the invocation command
line and stores them in PNG-compressed AREA format in the
/der2/ldm/data/GOES-8_IMG/CCYYMMDD directories.

The image sectors created have the same shape (lines x elements)
as GOES-East sectors sent in the Unidata-Wisconsin IDD datastream
(UNIWISC aka MCIDAS) before GOES-South America scans were included
in the sectors.  All images are 8-bit and have had the oversampling
in the element dimension removed.  I have verified that I can list
the image information in McIDAS while logged onto derecho; I am
not able to do the same or display the images from my home machine
presumably because the firewall on derecho limits access to
inbound requests on port 112 (the McIDAS ADDE port).

The various images saved are represented by the following
regular expressions:




Please take a look at the images and let me know if you find
anything wrong, or if you would like the sectors to have
different areal coverages.

'getgoesarchive.sh' is run as follows:

<as 'mcidas'>
./getgoesarchive.sh date


date - date in a McIDAS acceptable format:
