Hi Sean,

Thanks very much for that reference. CovJSON looks really good, and fairly
mature. Pity we weren't aware of this and didn't check this out a couple of
months ago!.

I think this would probably provide a full one-to-one mapping to CF-NetCDF,
which I think some will want. And seems to cover all the needs we were
trying to address with CF-JSON. And more besides.

Hopefully we will see widespread uptake and community acceptance. Getting
into TDS would certainly be a step in the right direction.

This is good and exactly what these kinds of lists are for. And one less
project to worry about. We will focus on our Javascript NetCDF reader
instead:
www.github.com/metocean/netcdfjs
Unless of course somewhere is aware of another project dealing with that!

Cheers, Dave
