[THREDDS #SYP-673547]: thredds service type?

Greetings Chris!

> Hi,

There isn't a problem. With THREDDS, opendap will serve any file type that  
files that can be read by the NetCDF Java library and accessed through the CDM 
data model. In this case, the NetCDF Java library cannot read csv files (for a 
list of files that can be read, and thus served through TDS, check out 
http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf-java/formats/FileTypes.html). I 
would recommend sticking to serving your data with the http protocol.
