Can you give specifics of that? No, actually the current InvCatalog-0.6 provides the same functionality as dods-dir, (and we have a working prototype for replacing dods-dir with a capability of returning thredds catalogs. All that remains is defining the request syntax that the servers will recognize as requesting a thredds inventory response.) The issue is that dods-dir is of limited value because all it provides is a simple listing of filenames. What I'm looking for is more in line with what the existing dods fileservers provide, that is a set of queriable search variables or parameters which uniquely identify a data granule within the catalog. For all intents and purposes there isn't any difference between the fileservers for our image archives and the AggServer configuration files for the same datasets (at least for our type 1 aggregations). The only difference is the encoding of the information, the information itself is identical. Dan
