[Support #BBK-486187]: WMS through THREDDs with stippling



Hi Caspar,

The WMS implementation used in THREDDS is ncWMS [1]. The âUncertainty Dataâ 
section [2] of the ncWMS documentation discusses support for stippling to 
visualize uncertainty data (see the âuncert-stippledâ style at the end of 
that section). The âEDAL SLD Specificationâ appendix [3] has two sections 
on stippling [4, 5] but again it appears focused on visualizing uncertainty 
data.

I'm not finding anything about stippling to visualize mask data as it sounds 
you wanting to do. You might ask on the ncWMS issues page [6] if there is 
support for that functionality.

I hope that helps.
Cheers,

Ethan
