[McIDAS #VQU-472558]: imgcopy UNIT parameter



Hi Carol,

re: Meteosat-11 file for testing
> Ok sounds good. I made a new directory in /home/mcidas.

Thanks.

The resulting image saved in MYDATA/METEO.1 will only have RAW and BRIT
calibrations.  For instance:

- I created an ADDE dataset called METEO/REMAP and defined its sole
  content to be /home/mcidas/meteo/meteosat-11.remap.area

- here is a FORM=ALL IMGLISTing for this image:

  The 'type' being VISR means that the pixels are 1-byte values with the
  'cal type' of BRIT.

- here is an IMGPROBE of this image at its center point:

IMGPROBE: Done

  IMGPROBE shows that the only valid calibration units for the remapped
  image are RAW and BRIT, and in this case RAW and BRIT are the same
  since the remapped image is of type VISR which means 1-byte.

The reason that the UNIT=REFL keyword specification on the IMGCOPY command
failed is that the image you are copying from does not have a valid
REFL calibration.  If, on the other hand, you do an IMGCOPY from your
original image the UNIT=REFL keyword will work as the original image
has a valid REFL calibration.

re:
> Thanks again for your help with this!

If remapping is crucial for your workflow, then I would try using
REMAP2 instead of IMGREMAP.  I must warn you, however, that REMAP2
is not a core McIDAS-X routine, rather it is an XRD (X Research
and Development) routine, and XRD routines come with the "big boy warranty"
which means that the routine has not been fully tested and verified to
work correctly in all cases, so end-users mileage may vary.

Cheers,

Tom
