All,

With the final release of WINGRIDDS v1.0, PCGRIDDS has finally completed the transition from MS DOS to MS Windows. I hope everyone is pleased with the program and you are familiarizing yourself with the new user interface.

The release of WINGRIDDS creates a new foundation on which to build and expand the program into new and exciting directions. The next major release already has some improvements planned which include:

1) Long file names to save screen saves to
2) Line-based contours with graduated color
3) Fill-based contours with selected patterns
4) Fill-based contours with selected colors
5) Fill-based contours with graduated colors
6) Tool-bar buttons for map pan & zoom
7) Command History button to recall recent commands into the Command Line

With this being the holiday season, I’ve created a WINGRIDDS Wish List of ten features I would like to incorporate into WINGRIDDS in the future. However, I am interested in what is important to you as users. So, below is my WINGRIDDS Top 10 Wish List listed from A-J in no specific order. I would like you to reply to me with a number from 1-10 to the left of every letter which feature would be most to least important with one being Most Important and 10 being Least Important.

Mike Davison – Please translate to Spanish & distribute to all the users in Central and South America for their input as well

WINGRIDDS Top 10 Wish List

A) Surface & Upper Air Observation Ingest and Display
B) Satellite Imagery & Derived Products (Mcidas & GINI format) Display
C) Custom Grid Projection to overlay data with varied grid projections
D) Skew-T & Hodograph Analysis & Displays
E) BUFKIT File Creations
F) Trajectories
G) Meteograph Displays
H) Nexrad Radar data displays
I) Diagnose & Display data on Potential Vorticity surfaces ***
J) More Diagnostic Commands (Please List)

Other ideas not listed:


Although this is being sent out through a variety of different ways, please reply back to:

Thanks for your feedback and support.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!

Wow, any of those additions would be fantastic.

Half of those additions I doubt I`ll use though, primarily because I`m in Canada. So here`s a top five from me.

1 A) Surface & Upper Air Observation Ingest and Display
2 D) Skew-T & Hodograph Analysis & Displays
3 B) Satellite Imagery & Derived Products (Mcidas & GINI format) Display
4 C) Custom Grid Projection to overlay data with varied grid projections
5 F) Trajectories

Regarding the ingestion of surface obs, could asus fronts be encorporated too?

Keep up the good work Jeff. Hope you have a great Christmas.
