CIRA/WMO VLab McIDAS-V exercises to load GOES and JPSS imagery

The following exercises were developed for two workshops: the WMO/NOAA VLab Train the Trainer workshop on “Satellite Data Usage: Access through GEONETCast Americas, Display, Interpretation, and Usage in Training” occurring on 15-16 July 2017 and the AmeriGEOSS "Training on Satellite Data: Access through GEONETCast Americas, Display, Interpretation, and Usage" occurring on 31 July - 4 August 2017. These exercises focus on linking information from online training modules with on hands-on data exploring activities.
