Re: More on WCS and THREDDS 3.16.36



Hi John:

That fixed the problem of generating the GeoTIFF. If you remember the genesis of this, Yuan Ho made changes to GeotiffWrite that seemed to give improved GeoTIFF's, and this was incorporated into THREDDS 3.16.36. Try these two URL's:

http://las.pfeg.noaa.gov:8082/thredds/wcs/satellite/BA/ssta/8day? request=GetCoverage&version=1.0.0&service=WCS&format=GeoTIFF&coverage=BA ssta&Vertical=.0&time=2008-06-13T00:00:00Z&bbox=220,20,250,50

http://las.pfeg.noaa.gov:8082/thredds/wcs/satellite/BA/ssta/8day? request=GetCoverage&version=1.0.0&service=WCS&format=GeoTIFFfloat
&coverage=BAssta&Vertical=. 0&time=2008-06-13T00:00:00Z&bbox=220,20,250,50


Attached also is an image generated from Ferret from the same server from the same file(s) using OPeNDAP. So the problem we are still facing is the GeoTIFF sampling/generation still seems off - we ultimately may need to ship 32 bit GeoTIIFS to the HAB program to be used in HAB forecasting.

Thanks.

aha!

I think the problem is that the tomcat user (however tomcat is started) doesnt have write permission in the WCS cache directory:

File dir = new File( getDiskCache().getRootDirectory());
File tifFile = File.createTempFile("WCS", ".tif", dir); <<< fails here


you may be using the default; to set it explicitly, use the "dir" element in WCS section of content/thredds/ThreddsConfig.xml, eg:

  <WCS>
    <allow>false</allow>
    <dir>/data/tmp/thredds/wcsCache/</dir>
    <scour>15 min</scour>
    <maxAge>30 min</maxAge>
  </WCS>

see:

http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/projects/THREDDS/tech/reference/ ThreddsConfigXMLFile.html

We changed it in latest version because old way was not thread- safe, if 2 requests for the same dataset came in at the same time.

let me know if that works...
