Re: [thredds] vector / contour plots using Thredds WMS

Hi Ivan,

I believe the facility to plot vectors is available in the latest TDS, unless 
Ethan can correct me?  (Contour plotting is still not implemented in TDS or 
standalone ncWMS.)

All you have to do is to use paired standard_names of "eastward_" and 
"northward_", e.g.


and a vector layer called sea_water_velocity will be automatically created.  
The default style for this layer will be a colour plot of the magnitude of the 
field overlain with basic vector arrows (not wind barbs).

Hope this works for you - let me know if not.



Hi there,

I'm interested in getting 'vector-like' NetCDF rendering via the Thredds 
WMS connector.. for making contour  / wind direction maps.

In searching the archives i see that my question has been answered here:

in that i can't at this stage, as the VECTOR style isn't implemented.  I 
was wondering if there is an update on this functionality since then, or 
if anyone has any advice in implementing this type of functionality in 
some other way.. hopefully with minimal pre-processing of the NetCDF 
file beforehand.
