Re: THREDDS Data Server release plans




Other features we are planning or considering:

* The OPeNDAP/NetCDF server will be enhanced to replace the DODS Aggregation Server functionality. This should allow aggregation to be done efficiently on files other than NetCDF.
* add a built-in FTP and/or GridFTP server.
* read NetCDF-4 and HDF5 files.
* create aggregation services for point/station observation datasets.
* make all datasets viewable through the IDV


We would like to know what features are a priority for you over the next year. Please send your thoughts to address@hidden


The combination of :

* The OPeNDAP/NetCDF server will be enhanced to replace the DODS Aggregation Server functionality. This should allow aggregation to be done efficiently on files other than NetCDF.
* create aggregation services for point/station observation datasets.

would be of high priority to us. In fact the whole issue of serving point/station observations, and integrating with gridded data (say overlaying fishery data on satellite data) is of high priority.


We aren't in th IDD, but we serve a lot of environmental data, including a large amount of satellite data (http://oceanwatch.pfel.noaa.gov ) . Would love to test this out, as NOAA Fisheries has many user who use ArcXX products, and interfacing OpeNDAP services with ESRIproducts has been of much concern.
