Hi Andrew, Have you been able to generate a catalog for your data or setup a THREDDS Data Server (TDS)? One thing I want to mention, automatic scanning only happens in the TDS not in the IDV. So, if you try to open the catalog you have below with the datasetScan elements in the IDV, it won't know how to deal with the datasetScan elements. That is probably why you only get the "my data" title. The datasetScan elements are configuration information for the THREDDS Data Server to know how to find the data it is supposed to serve.
