Hi,

Good Day! I am trying to read a a netCDF file from a THREDDS server. I don't want to save it in some file Directory and then read it. Is their any way i can read a netCDF file diectly fom the web with out downloading it. URL:

Thanks for any guidance, documentation, and suggestions you can provide.

Hello!

Unfortunately, no, since SDS uses NetCDF library 4.0.1 built for Windows without option --enable-dap.

You may try to build version 4.0.1 (or newer one) for Windows with OpenDAP support enabled and use it with SDS.

However, this is not an easy task. Chris_wen_11 tried to do this with only partial success. See http://sds.codeplex.com/discussions/260767, http://sds.codeplex.com/discussions/260900 and http://sds.codeplex.com/discussions/260767.
