Ben, Sorry for the slow response - just got back from being out of the office. We experimented with the catalog generator several months ago and at that time it did not handle the organization of the data holdings we were trying to catalog. We have several datasets that are organized, for functional reasons, with granules in daily directories - spanning a number of years. The generator choked on the large number of directories and granules. We will download the latest version and try again but we expect that the easier solution will be to write our own scripts to handle what might be a unique situation of the way we organized these data sets. We still need to get more proactive with actually testing our datasets through some THREDDS enabled applications, and are trying to utilize other data types and services through THREDDS - such as WMS/WCS functionality. We have recently developed an DODS server using ESML on the backend to access heterogeneous data sets and we would like to test this capability through THREDDS interactions as well.

There hasn't been any activity on it lately, so I thought I'd send a note out to the list to see if it's working and to ask for an update on the status of any THREDDS-related work you've been doing. I'm especially interested in experiences of data providers with THREDDS catalog generation/service tools and also any progess in the area of THREDDS catalog access from those groups working on data access and display clients. At this point it's also especially important to hear your ideas on where the THREDDS project should be headed from here. In case you have not heard, we are pleased to have Mohan Ramamurthy on board as the new director of the Unidata Program Center. Please let me know if you receive this message and respond to the address@hidden email list with your status updates and suggestions for future directions. Thanks, --Ben ****************************************************** Ben Domenico Unidata Deputy Director http://www.unidata.ucar.edu P.O.
