You can create and organize content in RAMADDA in a number of ways but we'll show you how to provide access
to data that is already on your server.
Now, lets assume you have a data directory on your server, e.g., /data/ldm
First, we need to tell RAMADDA that it is OK to provide access to that area of your file system.
Go to the site Administration pages from the "Admin" link:
Open the "Access " section and enter the data directory, e.g., /data/ldm, in the "File system access" field and press Change Settings:
Now you need to create an entry that provides access to that data.
Go to the top-level entry in RAMADDA (the "Top" link in the upper left).
Select "New Entry" under the File menu.
In the "Or create a" list choose Local File View and press Go:
This will take you to the Local File View Entry create form. Enter a name, the file path and that
patterns that match the files you want to exclude. When done press "Add Local File View"
Note: If you are providing access to your LDM/IDD data feed and you are also getting the NLDN lightning data and/or the ACARS feed make sure
you exclude those directories and files.
Congratulations you are done! To access your server from Unidata's Integrated Data View (IDV) go to the top level entry, click on the
View menu and copy the "Catalog" link into the IDV's catalog data chooser.
