IDV support

Some of the data files that are saved in the digatmos directory can be used by IDV These include the grib data files, which are saved in the directory

digatmos/model/grib
and the frontal bulletins that saved in
digatmos/nwx/hpc/fronts
Assuming that the noaaport data directories have been exported via Samba, the data files mentioned above can be opened from the IDV menu
Data -> New Source -> From the File System
specifying in that same menu the corresponding file type, grid or frontal bulletin.

The same data can be accessed remotely by selecting the ``Catalog'' item in that same menu, and pointing to

http://nbspserver:8015/_catalog/digatmos
substituting nbspserver by the correct name or ip.

MetarWeather support

The METAR data files are saved by nbsp in a form that are readily usable by MetarWeather. However, the noaaport data directory (/var/noaaport/data) must be exported via samba, as explained in the configuration section of the manual.

Then from the MetarWeather program, the data is obtained by opening the files that are in the subdirectory

metar/metarweather
If a collective file is opened (for example Louisiana/Louisiana.txt), then the last report from all the stations of the Lousiana collective are displayed. If a particular station file is opened, then the last reports from that station are displayed.
