[THREDDS #DRR-610037]: FillValue....

Hi Michael,

I don't believe this data can be viewed in the grid viewer. The problem is that 
netCDF-java/CDM expects gridded data to have coordinate variables without any 
missing values (so it can map between i,j and lat/lon). [John, please correct 
me if I'm wrong on this.] An "image" feature type would be more appropriate. 
Unfortunately, netCDF-java/CDM doesn't yet have an image type.

Outside of that, a few comments regarding some of the variable attributes:

  1) The valid_* and _FillValue attribute values are all strings. The
  strings are typed ("0b", "-90.0f", etc) but somehow ended up as
  strings instead of the intended type.

  2) The variable "lon" has valid_max,min of 90,-90 instead of 180,-180.

I didn't find the examples we looked at during the workshop. I'll look a bit 
more and ask John about them as well.
