Have found archive postings on this matter which have highlighted the
relationship between the elements <start>, <size> and <resolution>, i.e.
<start> represents the southern/western edge, <start> + <size>
represents the northen/eastern edge and <resolution> simply reports the
spacing between points. Had got it into my head that <start> represented
the southern/western edge and that <start> + (<size> * <resolution>)
represented the northern/eastern edge.
Having reread the doc. and checked the examples it now seems all so
clear, especially as the example gives a <northsouth> <start> value of
10, a <size> value of 80, a <resolution> value of 2, a <eastwest>
<start> value of -130, a <size> value of 260 and a <resolution> value of
2 which would have given me a latitude range of 10-170 degrees North and
a longtitude range of -130-390 degrees East.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
I have a GRIB-1 file with geospatial coverage of -60 to -30 degrees East
with a resolution of 1.25 degrees, i.e. 25 points of longitude. However,
to get the correct values to display when viewing the dataset through
THREDDS v4.2.7 I have to enter geospatial coverage values
></eastwest>" as the server does not appear to recognize the resolution
value correctly, i.e. it appear to read it as
Note: I have not problem with the latitude values
Anyone else encountered this?
