IMGFILT Correction for
McIDAS-X 2011.1

The McIDAS-X 2011.1 tar file available on the 2011.1 Software and Instructions page was updated 09 December 2011 at 20:50 UTC to include a corrected version of the IMGFILT command. The corrected IMGFILT, like that in previous versions of McIDAS-X, sets the destination image value to 0 (zero) if the corresponding source image value is less than the specified minimum.

Users who do not use the IMGFILT command can skip this update. Users who run the IMGFILT command and downloaded and installed McIDAS-X 2011.1 on their Unix workstation prior to 09 December 2011 20:50 UTC will need to install the corrected IMGFILT command by completing the instructions below.
