[McIDAS #MMD-610472]: 20140718: Problem matching projections between McIDAS and Terascan

Hi Greg,

First, I drove your email into our inquiry tracking system so that
it our exchanges can be made public so others can benefit.


In the future, please send support questions to the top-specific
email address for the package in question.  For example:

McIDAS  - address@hidden
GEMPAK  - address@hidden
IDD     - address@hidden
LDM     - address@hidden

If it is not obvious which package-specific email the inquiry should
be sent to, send the email to our general support address:


Following this guideline will insure that the inquiry gets looked at
as soon as possible since most packages that we support will be looked
at by more than one staff member.

Quite frankly, I don't see anything amiss right off.  It would help me
troubleshoot what is going on if I had access the original image so
I can replicate the remapping procedure.  It may well be that I already
have access to the image(s), but I wouldn't know this from the indirect
reference to the source ADDE dataset being accessed via '$sdset'.
