Re: Getting back up to speed

Tim, it is great to have you back, and certainty that DA will continue to develop. Things were beginning to get a bit quiet on the forum. Just to recap for the benefit of others what I discussed with you by email - that a major part of moving DA forward is going to be getting it able to import BUFR ...

Thanks for the information, Wally. I think more important than "fixes" is the ability of DA to import data in BUFR format, given that regions will be progressively moving ALL their data to that format in the near to very near future. I have just been told that Europe will be phasing out SYNOP, etc, ...

I hope the development isn't finished either, as there are quite a few areas that are not working properly, or just not working. I remember a post from Tim many months ago (around September last year IIRC) saying that he was hoping to get to a long list of fixes etc real soon. I've been watching thi...

And another. I have all checkboxes in the "map features to be drawn" section ticked in Preferences > Maps. When I map > generate base map for the United States, I get state boundaries fine. When I do the same for Australia, the state boundaries appear on the screen briefly, then vanish as river and ...

One more. In addition to the pressure tendency symbols missing, I've just discovered that the high, middle and low level cloud symbols are missing as well.

Wally, it's a great job you're doing, but I'm a little confused about versioning. I've just updated to ver 1.40d of Equinox which comes with digatmos.stn edition 64 dated 1 May 2006. The latest change number is 64. Downloading your 8 Dec 2008 update, I notice it is edition 55A giving two dates - 11 ...

Hi Shannon A few more: 1. Heat index and wind chill plot in deg F even when metric is selected. 2. Australian data from my site - Australian Weather News - is now working on the Retrieve Data menu again. I have fixed it following a major server change. 3. The output.sfc file is a great resource, but...

It is possible to be notified by email of a response to any of your posts by ticking the appropriate box below your post, though that's hardly the same functionality. I had much the same feelings as David when our main weather email list in Australia (aussie-Wx) was supplemented by a BB format forum...

Plotting synops

Tim, good move with the new BB. Great interface! Some bugs and suggestions with surface plots. I'm working with the data file at http://www.australianweathernews.com/digatm/syn/03112322.SYN which contains data for southeastern Australia, plotting it on the preset location map for Australia (NSW) and...
