[McIDAS #XAM-728083]: RTGOESR No Navigation...



Hi Christian,

Sorry for the delay in reply, I took the rest of the day off
yesterday :-)

re: who are you running imgdisp.k and map.k as?

OK.

re: what is your McIDAS environment when you try to run the commands?

This looks correct.

OK, but it shows that 'mcidas' can write to the directory.

Aside: if the session that created the ~/.mctmp/1483145238 directory
is no longer running (most likely), you can/should delete the
directory and all of its contents.

OK, some progress.

This seems to show that you were running as the user 'ldm', true?

Comment: there are times when doing an EG (eg.k) erases the navigation
associated with a frame, so this could be your problem.  Because of this,
I would change the order that you are doing things in to move the EG
invocation to before the IMGDISP invocation:

eg.k
imgdisp.k RTGOESR/CONUSC13 STA=CYUL MAG=6 EU=XREC SF=YES
map.k VH 8;bar.k COL=8 SU=TEMPC 1

> + map.k VH 8
> map.k: NO IMAGE OR NO NAVIGATION FOR FRAME
> + bar.k COL=8 SU=TEMPC 1
> bar.k: Cannot find dataset name

Does the stretch table TEMPC.ST exist in one of the MCPATH
specified directories?  I'm guessing that it was created in
the ~mcidas/workdata directory, and this directory is not
included in your MCPATH.

This is likely saying that the MCPATH specification was not
complete, OR the first directory specified was not writable
by 'mcidas'.

re:
> I searched in support but it was not clear how to fix it...

Getting the environment correct is everything when running
McIDAS-X scripts.  The distribution contains two example Bourne
shell scripts that were designed to be used as templates for
writing one's own script.  Both are in the ~mcidas/data directory:

mcrun.sh
mcbatch.sh

re:
> Thanks again, I hope my message is not too confusing...

It was not confusing at all.

By the way, I know that scripting works since I have/am using
McIDAS-X scripts to convert GOES-16 imagery from its original
netCDF-4 format to McIDAS AREA for eventual distribution in
the IDD UNIWISC feed primarily for GEMPAK users.

Cheers,

Tom
