Changing Imager Server Dataset Names

Perform steps 1-3 in the following procedure to change or update imager server dataset names; perform steps 4-6 in the following procedure to change GVAR sounder dataset names.

1. From the console, login as mcadde or telnet into the ingestor as user mcadde.

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

N1=GVAR,N2=ALL,TYPE=IMAGE,K=GVAR,R1=1,R2=2500,C=GOES-8 all images
N1=GVAR,N2=CONUS,TYPE=IMAGE,K=GVAR,R1=1,R2=2500,C=GOES-8 continental U.S.
N1=GVAR,N2=NH,TYPE=IMAGE,K=GVAR,R1=1,R2=2500,C=GOES-8 northern hemisphere
N1=GVAR,N2=SH,TYPE=IMAGE,K=GVAR,R1=1,R2=2500,C=GOES-8 southern hemisphere
N1=GVAR,N2=FD,TYPE=IMAGE,K=GVAR,R1=1,R2=2500,C=GOES-8 full disk
N1=GVAR,N2=FD-E,TYPE=IMAGE,K=GVAR,R1=1,R2=2500,C=GOES-8 full disk east
N1=GVAR,N2=FD-W,TYPE=IMAGE,K=GVAR,R1=1,R2=2500,C=GOES-8 full disk west
N1=GVAR,N2=OTHER,TYPE=IMAGE,K=GVAR,R1=1,R2=2500,C=GOES-8 unknown
N1=CRUD,N2=CONUS,TYPE=IMAGE,K=AREA,R1=1,R2=2500,C=GOES-8 continental U.S.



is the ADDE group name


is the ADDE descriptor name


is the data type


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


is the comment field displayed with DSINFO

3. 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.
