[THREDDS #XGC-910742]: NetCDF Subset Service (NCSS) returns 0.0 vertical coordinate if multiple variables requested



Hi John,

Thanks for this bug report. I've entered it in our issue tracking system here

https://www.unidata.ucar.edu/jira/browse/TDS-192

You can keep an eye on the issue or just check the change logs of new releases.

> (vertCoord) is always listed as 0.0 if I request data for more than one
> variable (e.g. var=u,v) regardless of the vertical coordinate that I've
> specified. The data values that are returned are correct for the vertical
> coordinate that I specify, so that's good. It's just that the vertical
> coordinate doesn't come back the same as what I requested. For example:
