[IDV #WON-355400]: Problematic point netcdf file

Hi Dave,

The good news:

Your file is fully CF-compliant. CF is the most widely-adopted and future-proof 
convention for storing NetCDF data, and is definitely the format you want going 

Incidentally, you can verify that a point NetCDF file is CF-compliant using 
ToolsUI [1]. Launch ToolsUI and open the file in the FeatureTypes->PointFeature 
tab. If that succeeds, click the "Dataset Info" button at the top-right. Near 
the top of the window that pops up, you should see the line:
    _CoordSysBuilder = "ucar.nc2.dataset.conv.CF1Convention"

The bad news:

It appears that IDV cannot yet read this particular point data representation. 
I'm going to throw this issue back over the fence to the IDV team--perhaps they 
can be of more assistance. Apologies for the prolonged back-and-forth.
