Hi all,
I'm struggling with my first attempt to download a GeoTIFF using WCS from TDS. I know this requires a GetCoverage request, but I get a "File not found" error no matter what I've tried so far. GetCapabilities and DescribeCoverage work, and I already have WCS allow=true and allowRemote=true in threddsConfig.xml. The TDS logs do not say much of anything. Is there something else I need to "turn on" before GetCoverage will work?

GetCapabilities (works):


DescribeCoverage (works):


GetCoverage (all give "File not found" error):


Ideas? Wrong syntax? A bug?

ok, if you can manage to see the actual *&#^# message that gets returned (eg use control-U in firefox or chrome) :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ServiceExceptionReport xmlns=""; version="1.2.0">
<ServiceException code="InvalidParameterValue" locator="CRS">Request CRS [EPSG:4326] not allowed [OGC:CRS84].</ServiceException>

anyway, removing &CRS=EPSG:4326 <,-15.623036831528252,277.3828125,59.80063426102869&WIDTH=1705&HEIGHT=1034&TIME=2011-05-13T00:00:00Z&ELEVATION=0> returns a decent looking file.

we dont actually allow any coordinate transformations, so you can have any color you want as long as its black.
