The Mapes IDV collection

A self-updating, ever-improving IDV 'Plugin' maintained by Prof. Brian Mapes.
The collection's 'repository' of materials is at http://bit.ly/Mapes_IDV

Quickstart:

1. Download, click to install, and launch The IDV (Integrated Data Viewer).

2. From the IDV's Tools-->Plugin manager, install the Customized/MapesIDV collection plugin. 

3. Relaunch the IDV. The Mapes IDV collection is most obvious as a Favorites folder in your Toolbar. Other resources will be there too.

What features will you gain from the plugin?

Whatever I have put in the plugin at any given time!
Because it is referenced as a URL, the plugin will get better as I learn more and share more. 

Most obviously, you will see Favorite Bundles.
The Mapes IDV collection folder is mine, the other ("PSD bundles") is from Don Murray at NOAA-PSD, one of the IDV's original developers.
The IDV bundles actually live on http://bit.ly/Mapes_IDV, a link shortener to the Web interface of my RAMADDA "repository".

But also you will gain:
