BES - Modules - GeoTiff, GRIB2, JPEG2000 Handler

From OPeNDAP Documentation

1 Kinds of files the handler will serve

This handler will serve data stored in files that can be read using the GDAL GIS library, including GeoTIFF, JPEG2000 and GRIB2.

1.1 Dataset representation

These are all GIS datasets, so DAP2 responses will contains Grid variables with latitude and longitude maps. For DAP4, the responses will be coverages with latitude and longitude domain variables.

1.2 Known problems

Often the data returned when using nothing but a GeoTIFF, JPEG2000 or GRIB2 file contains none of the metadata that make them useful for people not extremely familiar with the particular dataset. Thus, in most cases some extra work will have to be done either using NcML or an ancillary DAS file to add metadata to the dataset.

2 Configuration parameters

None.
