I'm the author of My World GIS; I've previously written to you from the address address@hidden, but I'm now at National Geographic. After a long hiatus from working on My World GIS, I'm getting version 5 ready for release. In the process, I discovered an issue with ucar.nc2.NetcdfFile.getRaf. The problem may be specific to Windows. When you call getRaf with a "file:" URL that contains escaped spaces, it throws a FileNotFoundException. I fixed the problem by changing line 496 from
uriString = uriString.substring(5);
uriString = StringUtil.unescape(uriString.substring(5));
(this is in version 4 of the NetCDF-Java source code; My World is still on Java 1.5). I tested it on MacOS X Snow Leopard, and it doesn't seem to cause any problems there. I haven't tested it on Linux yet.
Hi again Eric:
Hmmm thats interesting. Under what circumstances does a location get passed in with escaped spaces?
So are you still working on MyWorld for northwestern, or is it somehow involved with ngs?
