GRIB error

Are you importing more than one forecast hour at a time? This seemed to be a problem that I encountered when I tried to import GRIB data. I had success when I only imported one forecast hour (24 36 48 so on..). I got my data from the NOMADS site, ( I prefer the meso-eta and usually use the 00, 24, a...

Do the analysis/styles need to be simplified?

I think the system in place is just fine as is. Once I get it set up the way I wish, I seldom have need to change it. Perhaps the best way to assist the beginning/casual user would be a walk-through addition to the user manual. Sort of a hand-holding guide to making the desired changes. I think that...

GRIB data and importing

Matt: I wouldn't think that having the demo version would prevent you from using all the features of DAWS. After all, that is the point of a demo version. Are you trying to import all the forecast hours that you select at one time, or at least more than one? I had my best luck only importing one for...

GRIB data and importing

Dear KC9CGJ: I don't know about the site you are using, but I have had excellent results at: nomads.ncdc.noaa.gov. You can select from various models and forecast hours, and it allows you to speed up the download by setting a subregion instead of downloading the entire grib file. Also, you may selec...

print probs in Win XP home

Count me in, too I am using Win XP Home on a Compaq Presario with AMD Athlon processor. 256 mb memory, 40 GB harddrive. The first map prints just fine, then no commands will enter on the command line. It is then necessary to employ the three finger salute to end the program. On the positive side, th...

Presidential election 2004

Dear Stefan: Why are you sad and disappointed? Mr Kerry is a competent senator, but his track record of mistrust of American power and it's use in the world is very troubling. His insistance on not going to war without the assistance and approval of countries like France implies that countries that ...

installaation difficulties

Dear Jeff: Jeffrey Krob for President, or maybe demi-god, I am not sure which. All is now fine in Beta-Land. As I suspected, the problem was with insufficient skill of the operator, not the program. The command executed flawlessly. The new look is very nice. The maps are a great deal easier to under...

Installation difficulties

Dear Jeff, and others: I seem to have a problem with the Beta release. It is, in all probability, something I am doing wrong. I downloaded the Beta release, (562 KB),and the support files, and unzipped them to the PCGRIDDS 32 directory. I allowed overwriting to all files. When I started PCGRIDDS 32 ...

what grib files do you use

Dear Simon; I just recently tried the GRIB import function in DAWS and had excellent success. It went much easier than I expected. I use files from nomads.ncdc.noaa. I am currently using the meso-Eta files because they run out to 48 hours, and they work well in the time section display in PCGRIDDS 3...

Pcgridds 32

Dear Jeff: (If I may be permitted the familiarity) Glad to hear about the planned update release. To say that I find the program useful is to damn it with faint praise. To me it is like an onion; the more I work with it, the more I find that I can do with it. I started out just using the menu format...
