[McIDAS #VCV-366716]: How to convert an image into AREA format?



Hi Sohail,

After our email exchange yesterday, I sent a note off to a McIDAS-X
developer and the head of the Data Center at UW/SSEC asking if they
knew of any ADDE server code that supports FY2G.  The comment I got
back was that the SSEC Data Center gets FY2G imagery in AREA format
from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (ABoM), so they may either
have their own ADDE server code; software that can convert FY2G
images to AREA format; and/or have an archive of FY2G imagery in
AREA format.

I have asked for a contact name at the ABoM, so we can find out how
they are doing their conversions to AREA format.

The other interesting piece of information that I got back from SSEC
is that their Data Center has FY2G imagery in AREA format in their
archive.  This is useful since SSEC provides free access to their
Data Center holdings for Unidata university sites.  The access is
not unlimited, but the monthly download limits are quite robust,
so you should be able to get the imagery that you need/want from
them ** IF they have the days/times that you want **.

This Unidata news blog article describes what you will need to do
to request access to the SSEC Data Center archives:

Cheers,
