Re: [thredds] Geotiffs

Toms' IOSP auto-register will be in the 4.3 release. We will look at the geotiff iosp also if time permits.

I sure hope Tom's GeoTIFF IOSP makes it to the TDS trunk.   Converting
from GeoTIFF to NetCDF using GDAL works, but the resulting files are
not CF compliant, so you need to patch them up with NcML, or modify
the resulting files.  And of course then you've got duplicate data.
So a GeoTIFF IOSP would be a whole lot better!

One way to do this would be to use a GeoTIFF IOSP then treat the files as any 
other file supported by NetCDF-Java/TDS.  As far as GeoTIFF ISOPs, I've created 
a github repository with my GeoTIFF IOSP code:

To use this

1) Clone the project with git
2) Build the project with maven
3) Grab the jar target/geotiff-isop.netcdf-plugin.jar and register it with your 

I gave Unidata some code that will auto-register IOSPs.  If this gets released 
you will only have to have this IOSP in the class-path for it to be 
automatically registered for use.

Hi All:

In some talks with a data provider, they have a dataset that is presently in 
geotiffs.  In the future we may get netcdf's instead,  and I will also look 
into seeing how well GDAL translates them.  But I and writing to see if there 
is anything that serve and aggregate geotiffs similar to how THREDDS handles 
netcdf.    Or if anyone has other suggestions.
