Datasets can be made available through more than one access method by defining and then referencing a compound
<service name="all" serviceType="Compound" base="" > <service name="odap" serviceType="OpenDAP" base="/thredds/dodsC/" /> <service name="wcs" serviceType="WCS" base="/thredds/wcs/" /> </service>
defines a compound service named
all which contains two nested services.
Any dataset that reference the compound service will have two access methods.
<dataset name="SAGE III Ozone 2006-10-31" urlPath="sage/20061031.nc" ID="20061031.nc"> <serviceName>all</serviceName> </dataset>
would result in these two access URLs, one for OpenDAP access
and, one for WCS access:
The contained services can still be referenced independently. For instance:
<dataset name="Global Averages" urlPath="sage/global.nc" ID="global.nc"> <serviceName>odap</serviceName> </dataset>
results in a single access URL:
