Re: [thredds] NcML and the <geospatialCoverage> element


Briefly scanning that page it looks like this gist of it is that one could use NcML to add/complete a "Unidata Dataset Discovery v1.0" set of metadata to a data set. THis could then be harvested by the TDS, or by other software that understood the "Unidata Dataset Discovery v1.0" convention.

Is that the general idea?

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?
