I would like to replace variable names lat,lon,Depth,timeObs
with latitude,longitude,depth,time
to be consistent with your Unidata Observation Dataset v1.0 conventions.

But when I make that change the IDV gives Unable to make a PointObsDataset from

How can I make an observation data file that uses latitude,longitude,depth,time?

the variable names Depth and timeObs are ugly and not in the convention. I have a faint memory that I created them for some GEON data more than a year ago. Now I can't
get rid of them!


Hi Stu:

Did you try using the latest nj22.jar as i mentioned in my last email? There are a number of bug fixes we need to make this work.
