[idvusers] Does IDV use scale_factor and add_offset with netCDF?

Does IDV use scale_factor and add_offset when it's imaging a 2-d netCDF 
field?  In particular, does it use them with the latitude and longitude 
variables?  It doesn't list these variables among the 2-d fields, so I 
presume something is happening with them by default, but none of the 
images I try to make are even vaguely sensible so it doesn't look as if 
they are getting used in the projection mapping process.

Error when trying to load from catalog





I got this error when trying to load from a catalog:

        Error: Could not load url: 
http://motherlode.ucar.edu:8080/thredds/idv/models.xml

I can reach http://motherlode.ucar.edu/thredds/ with my browser but don't 
find an idv directory there.
