[Miscellaneous #UFF-250801]: GOES east & west geotiff files

Hi Derek,

OK.  I'm curious about which VMware product will be installed... are
you/your IT aiming to install Player, or is there a site license for

BTW, I assume that IT has to be involved because you do not have
the capability of installing software on your machine, true?

I agree on both counts.

If Frank is running an LDM and is getting the UNIWISC data feed AND
has McIDAS installed on his LDM machine, the process of creating
GeoTiffs from the UNIWISC global IR composite would be _very_ simple.
Do you want to bring Frank into this discussion?

Very good.  If I don't answer, please leave a voicemail with your
best contact info (phone, Skype, Hangouts, whatever).
