[McIDAS #TVR-927190]: GOES-16 ADDE Data Access



Hi Fred,

re:
> I can display the GOES-16 data via ADDE.

Very good.

re:

> display.

Hmm... I'm betting that you are running a version that does not include
support for the FixedGrid projection.

re:
> I successfully copied an image over to my computer, but I cannot display any
> data from the copied data.

Again, it sounds like you are running a pre-FixedGrid capable version of McIDAS;
one that has support for ABIN navigation.

re:
> Again there is no navigation data with the area, and when I
> try to display it with IMGDISP I get error messages saying "Units requested 
> are not
> available for this image" even if I do not request any units.

This suggests a McIDAS version that does not include the ABIN calibration.

re:
> I am running the 2015 version of Mcidas.

That's the reason!

re:
> Do I need the 2017 version of Mcidas for these basic functions?

You need at least Unidata McIDAS-X v2016a to use the data from a
remote ADDE server.  You will need the v2017 release to serve the
data correctly (meaning if you create local AREA files and then
use them, you will need v2017).

re:
> I displayed all 16 channels of the GOES-16.  Nice looking images.

I think that they are spectacular.  They still have a number of issues
that are being worked on, but they look great!

Cheers,

Tom
