Re: [thredds] OPeNDAP access to data in ArcSDE/Geodatabase?

ERDDAP can now hook into databases if they can make a view of the requisite 
data.  ERDDAP can also act as an OPeNDAP server.  Some fiddling might be 
necessary to have the data seen as a grid.  II not, it can still be sent by 
OpeNDAP, just as OpeNDAP sequences.
