Re: Hyrax 1.16 (an OpenDAP server) now implements spatial data on the Web best practices

Hi Jeremy,
Thanks for bringing this up. Since we wrote the CovJSON handler, we noticed
and fixed some bugs but further community usage and feedback is still
For anyone interested in seeing what a CovJSON response would look like,
check out the following[0:1:2399][0:1:2399],_500_m_16_days_EVI2[0:1:2399][0:1:2399],lon[0:1:2399][0:1:2399],lat[0:1:2399][0:1:2399],YDim[0:1:2399],XDim[0:1:2399]

Notice I've simply appended the .covjson file suffix to the initial data
file request before appending the variables.

With regards to crawler-friendly metadata, yes your absolutely right as
well. Big step forward.
Thanks again,
