Re: TDS Tutorial for Novices

Many thanks, Matt,

That sounds extremely valuable.   It is much appreciated.   Several of us are away at our Unidata Policy Committee meeting so it may be a while before you get a more complete reply.

Thanks again.

Gentlemen (Hi Ben),

I'm involved with the data management group for a large ($500M) 10 year project -->  Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative.

The project involves 100's of researchers and many of them are numerical modelers. We recommended that project  modelers  consider serving their model output through a TDS. None of them had any experience with TDS so our group offered to provide them with a quick-start guide to TDS.

We are aware of the TDS tutorial and other fine resources UNIDATA offers, however, we felt we would learn TDS more deeply if we tried to write a tutorial ourselves. Dr. Steve Baum (Texas A&M University) took on the task to write a THREDDS for Novices.   Although it's a work in progress - it is sufficiently complete that we intend to present it to the modelers in two weeks.

We invite you to take a look at it.  Comments corrections, and suggestions are welcomed.  
We hope you will feel it is a beneficial contribution to the community.

For the time being - you can find it here.  http://stommel.tamu.edu/~baum/thredds2.html
