McIDAS-XCD
McIDAS X
Conventional
data Decoder
McIDAS-XCD files, decodes and indexes the NOAAPORT data stream (or other
data streams) into formats that can be served by McIDAS-X ADDE servers.
Output formats include McIDAS MD files, text files, McIDAS GRID files, GRIB and
GRIB2 files, NEXRAD files, and GINI files.
 Before 1994, conventional data was decoded on IBM

mainframe (Whittaker)
Early 1990s moved to a distributed system. Prototypes
developed for McIDAS-OS2 (PC McIDAS) Called
McIDAS-OCD (Pyeatt)
1994 first version on Unix. Required McIDAS-X.
Named McIDAS-XCD (Pyeatt)
Data came in on a Central Data Card via the Family
of Services.
NOAAPORT certified operational on November 25,

Currently we get NOAAPORT data in two ways
1. Directly from DOMSAT via DBS using NOVRA S75
2. Over the Internet via LDM

 Filing and indexing text data
 Filing and indexing point/MDXX
 Data management for NEXRAD
 Can incorporate local data feeds
 Installation/upgrades are difficult (many steps,
prone to user error)
 System is complex, large learning curve for
operators, and very large learning curve for new
programmer
 Performance can be an issue
 Data stored in format different than incoming
format
 Can’t handle BUFR (except for filing)
 McIDAS-XCD Survey (sent out immediately following
this meeting)
 Find out what users like/don’t like
 Find out what parts of McIDAS-XCD are used
 Solicit input on the future directions
 Does McIDAS-XCD need to change?
 If yes, how?

Stand alone decoders?
LDM decoders?
ADDE servers?
Other server model? THREDDS? RAMADDA?
