[McIDAS #JDP-876809]: VISSR/VAS (GOES-7 and earlier) AREA files projection problems



Hi,

I used McIDAS-X to convert the GOES-17 (SMS-II) images in AREA
format to netCDF for the dates/times you listed in a previous email.

The images are available from:

https://atm.ucar.edu/decoded/mcidas/GOES7/netCDF

Comments:

- all netCDF images have been bzip compressed to save disk
  space and make them download quicker

- the IR images converted from AREA to netCDF without any
  problems

- the process that converts the VIS images in AREA format would hang
  after writing out what appears to be a full file, but I am not
  sure that the resultant images are fully viable

- the netCDF VIS images are LARGE even after being gzip compressed!

Please let me know when you have downloaded the images so that they
can be deleted.

Cheers,

Tom
