I am not sure if NCL can handle reading these HDF images from the
Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC). I have attached one to this
message. I am trying to plot composite radar reflectivity data for
I believe they are "raster" images, and may not fall into the HDF4 or
HDF-EOS supported by NCL. However, I thought I would ask to see if
anyone has had success with this dataset, these type of files, or other
archived reflectivity datasets and NCL.
I do know for a fact that IDL can plot these using the code such as:
hdfid = hdf_open('U'+strtrim(string(times(i)),2)+'Z99.219_refl_2km.hdf')
hdfid = hdf_gr_start(hdfid)
hdfid2 = hdf_gr_select(hdfid,0)
hdfid2 = hdf_gr_readimage(hdfid2,value)
where the _gr option is for "generic raster" I believe.
If I cannot get this to work, are there other dataset suggestions?
Doesn't Unidata have archived radar composites available? Can NCL use
Thank you to anyone who can help me. I believe this is not an easy
problem to tackle.
