[McIDAS #FVN-341512]: converting netcdf to mcidas area format



Hi Justin,

There is no way that I know of to convert any netCDF field into a
McIDAS AREA in McIDAS-X.  Converting imagery in AREA format to
netCDF, however, is supported.

OK.

Are you really looking to convert the netCDF to an AREA, or are you wanting
to display the field in the netCDF file as an image in McIDAS-X?  There
are no facilities in McIDAS-X for doing the former, but there is a way
to do the latter.

Cheers,

Tom
