Reported problem in fileout_netcdf associated with _FillValue in Ocean Color dataset
A user reports that trying to get the netcdf fileout response for this dataset:
Returns an "empty" 165 byte file.
After checking into this we see that the return is a DAP2 error:
Looking at the:
I suspect that the _FillValue for the Byte variable qual_sst was probably being mishandled (as in converted to a signed value or some such). Certainly asking for just qual_sst produces the error:
The server is run-in Hyrax 1.12.1 so this issue may be fixed in the current release but we must check.
Lacking the source data file we can build a test dataset using ncgen with a variable that mimics qual_sst and test against that. same properties
I was never able to get a response from the admins at oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov. I made that attached test dataset and the current code base has no problem producing fileout_nectdf representations of it. So… I am closing this as a No-OP
