(http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/idv/)? It can read THREDDS catalogs and 
open datasets in those catalogs that are served by OPeNDAP. Once opened it can 
make subset requests to actual read the data from the server.There is also the 
NCSS service which provides a way to request a subset of a dataset and get a 
netCDF file back. For example, on our server 
(http://motherlode.ucar.edu:8080/thredds/catalog.html), if you browse down thru 
"NCEP Model Data" to an accessible dataset you will see a variety of access 
methods. If you select the "NetcdfSubset" access URL, it will show a web form 
from which you can
  select the subset you want.> I have examined the Netted tools application

the "Netted tools application" so I can't give you much help there. Is that

what types of data can they read?If your legacy systems can read netCDF files, 
then the NCSS service might be  of interest. Another possibility if they 
read netCDF, the next release of netCDF-4 will also read OPeNDAP so with a 
little relinking you could access the remote data directly  in your 
apps.> Thanks> ErnieHope that's useful. Let us know if you have any other
