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



Hi Michael,

Great! Having the right types and values for missing_value, valid_*, and/or 
_FillValue allow the library to recognize missing data. It turns out that the 
grid type does handle missing values in 2-D coordinate variables. Missing 
values, on the other hand, are not allowed in 1-D coordinate variables.

So, this solves the problem of viewing the data in the Grid Viewer.

The WCS specification only deals with regular grids (1-D coordinate variables 
that are evenly spaced). Since  our WCS implementation doesn't do any remapping 
(something we generally try to avoid), the TDS can only serve regular gridded 
data over WCS.

As for WMS, it does a lot of remapping. However, neither John or I are sure if 
the WMS code deals with general 2-D coordinate variables. This is probably a 
better question for the ncWMS list:

We'll take a look at your BUFR data to see what's up there.
