[thredds] NcML and the <geospatialCoverage> element




Greetings,

I have some questions about the origin of the thredds:geospaptialCoverage element that is commonly found in THREDDS catalogs. It is my understanding that:

- The TDS can generate this metadata element by interrogating certain types of source data files. - People that write their own THREDDS catalog files to be served by the TDS can add the thredds:geospaptialCoverage metadata directly to their catalogs (using whatever process they wish).

Is the thredds:geospaptialCoverage also something that can be added through normal channels in NcML augmented data sets?
