Re: [thredds] nco as a web service

Not as long but the same idea:

http://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/erddap/tabledap/fsuNoaaShipWTDM.png?longitude,latitude,seaTemperature&time%3E=2010-10-07T00:00:00Z&time%3C=2010-10-14T00:00:00Z&.draw=markers&.marker=1|5&.color=0x000000&.colorBar=|||8|12|16

Put it into your browser to see the result.  The data are not gridded.
