[McIDAS #HLZ-722478]: Problem displaying Himawari visible image



Hi Kwan,

Before diving into the code in IMGDISP (imgdisp.pgm) to find out why
the IMGLIST listing for your Band 3 Himawari AREA file does not
include information about what Band 3 is, I decided to create my
own sector with the same parameters (e.g., lines x elements, band, etc.)
as your AREA file and then test it locally.  What I found is that the
AREA file that I created works without problems.

The following IMGLIST listings for your and my Band 3 AREA files
show one of the aspects that are different:

Your image is in AREA2005, and this maps to position 2005 in my
local MYDATA/IMAGES dataset:

IMGLIST MYDATA/IMAGES.2005 FORM=ALL
Image file directory listing for:MYDATA/IMAGES
 Pos Satellite/         Date       Time      Center      Res (km)   Image_Size

My image is in AREA2006, and this maps to position 2006 in my
local MYDATA/IMAGES dataset:

IMGLIST MYDATA/IMAGES.2006 FORM=ALL

Note that the listing for you image indicates that there is no information
for the wavelength channel:

   Band: 3    No Information Available

The listing for my image correctly shows the wavelength channel information
as defined in the file SATBAND:

   Band: 3    0.64 um Daytime clouds and vegetation

This coupled with a calibration unit indicated in your image, REFL, that
is not recognized for Himawari imagery in McIDAS tells me that whatever
code made your AREA2005 image is incorrect, or, at least, completely
non-standard and, therefore, should be ignored.

Cheers,

Tom
