Re: [thredds] Albers or LCC supported as a WMS projection on the TDS?

Hi Rich,

Even if a CRS is not listed, both ncWMS and TDS WMS can handle requests
for any CRS supported by the underlying GeoToolkit library. The CRS
database in TDS 4.2 does not contain EPSG CRS 9822 or 9802. However,
they should both be available in TDS 4.3. So, if you are trying this on
a TDS 4.3, you can just give it a try.

As for the WMS GetCapabilities CRS list, it is currently not user
configurable. For TDS 4.3 it would simply be a matter of a minor code
change (adding the two EPSG numbers to a list) and then rebuilding. It
is a bit more work in TDS 4.2, but not much harder, along with adding
the EPSG number to a list, we would need a WKT for each of the new
projections. (The CRS WKT needs to be in a form the GeoToolkit can read.)

We've kept the list to a minimum because in earlier versions we listed
all available projections and the list got quite large.

Are you using TDS 4.3? Do you need these CRS to be in the list or is
being able to request them enough?
