Ticket #292 (assigned Task: null)
Create Generic OPeNDAP Fetch Tool
|Reported by:||bbest||Owned by:||jjr8|
|Component:||Tools - Conversion||Version:|
OPeNDAP server configuration could be with individual Python config files, similar to the repositories specified with yum in the yum.repos.d. These config files could specify the time (poch, interval) and coordinate system (based on COARDS, cdf compliance). There is also the ability to query the attributes of the server, either on the fly at the validation step or with another tool, like HDF SDS header tool. Then we could create a list of these server configs on an MGET server and in the ArcGIS 9.3 validation step, fetch the latest list. Highlighting the multitude of available remote data sources on the main Wiki of the website should make MGET very attractive.
