Thanks for what you've done so far in looking at the datasets we're considering working with using the netCDF/JAVA stack. You brought up a good point about the projection information. I wasn't expecting you to do any coding, but I'm no closer to understanding what level of effort is required to get the software working with these data. Let me go back to my original question - would you be willing to give an orientation talk to our developers?
Best wishes, SiriJodha

Sorry, Ive been swamped. The IOSP work isnt particularly hard. I thought I might get one done to show you, but didnt have time. I can give you a sample IOSP that you could continue to develop. Probably couldnt get it to you until May though.
Im not sure what I can tell you more concretely at this moment. If you want to include us for a part of the Access proposal $, we could continue to provide you with support as you develop the project.

The notice of intent to submit a proposal is due in about a week.
Any progress on scoping IOSPs for the mentioned data types?

trying some random ones, i notice that the last link
i assume all the others starting with NSIDC are in your bespoke format, eg
"Near-Real-Time DMSP SSM/I-SSMIS Pathfinder Daily EASE-Grid Brightness Temperatures"
is not in DMSP format, but uses this format:
i also vaguely remember that you had a java library that implemented your projections. is that available?

I'll point you to some guide documents (which are maintained for every
dataset we distribute). Data access is pointed to from these pages.
Actually, what we'd like to do, eventually, is rebuild SAGE

netCDF. Right now SAGE is based on a lot of custom IDL code using a java
db bridge to access data. If you follow the sage link, and look at the
user guide tab, you'll see links to the data catalog pages. But, I

send me some sample files (and docs) so i can scope the difficulty.

I've gotten a tentative green light from NSIDC to pursue funding under
the NASA ROSES ACCESS call to build services on our heritage SSM/I
(binary formatted) data as well as possibly our EOS HDF4 and HDF5
The awards are relatively small and there is some skepticism here
regarding the effort it will take to get the library up and running on
Would you be willing to visit NSIDC to talk with some developers to describe what would be involved, and the benefits that would be realized through the netCDF/Java stack.
