Changing GVAR Imager Dataset Names

Perform steps 1-2 below to change GVAR imager dataset names. See the next page to change GVAR sounder dataset names.

1. To change ADDE names associated with particular datasets, edit the /data/opt/etc/RESOLV.SRV file. The following is a sample of this file. Notice that all fields are comma delimited.

N1=GVAR,N2=ALL,TYPE=IMAGE,RT=N,K=GVAR,R1=1,R2=2500,Q=/data,C=GOES all images,
N1=GVAR,N2=CONUS,TYPE=IMAGE,RT=N,K=GVAR,R1=1,R2=2500,Q=/data,C=GOES continental U.S.,
N1=GVAR,N2=FD,TYPE=IMAGE,RT=N,K=GVAR,R1=1,R2=2500,Q=/data,C=GOES full disk,
N1=GVAR,N2=NH,TYPE=IMAGE,RT=N,K=GVAR,R1=1,R2=2500,Q=/data,C=GOES northern hemisphere,
N1=GVAR,N2=SH,TYPE=IMAGE,RT=N,K=GVAR,R1=1,R2=2500,Q=/data,C=GOES southern hemisphere,
N1=GVAR,N2=OTHER,TYPE=IMAGE,RT=N,K=GVAR,R1=1,R2=2500,Q=/data,C=GOES unknown,



is the ADDE group name


is the ADDE descriptor name


is the data type

RT RT flag (not used for real-time GVAR datasets)


is the data format or kind


is the beginning dataset position number (usually 1)


is the ending dataset position number; this number should always be greater than the total number of images the ingestor has been configured to retain

Q is the directory that the descriptor file is in


is the comment field displayed with the DSINFO command

2. Save the file.

The IMGLIST command lists the images in a dataset. It always shows the image resolution as 1 (full resolution) and the image size as the complete image size. All sectorizing or image blowdowns are done via other ADDE commands such as IMGDISP, IMGCOPY, etc.
