WINGRIDDS Top 10 Wish List

Post by jkrob »

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.

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.
