comment Problem with ImageMosaic plugin of Geoserver - invalid shapefile/tif missing in GetCapabilities
Also github.com/geotools/geotools/blob/… details all the time formats it tries.

comment Creating Store in GeoServer using ImageMosaic Plugin gives Error?
Making the directory writable by the tomcat process worked for me. The code attempts to make DIRNAME.(dbf,prj,properties,shp, and shx) filesin the directory, and when it can't it produces this error string.

comment Problem with ImageMosaic plugin of Geoserver - invalid shapefile/tif missing in GetCapabilities
I do not have an answer yet, but I think it is poorly documented. It isn't at all obvious how to mod things. The source code at github.com/geotools/geotools/blob/master/modules/plugin/… and github.com/geotools/geotools/blob/… hint that you could also set a timeregex.properties:format SimpleDateFormat

comment Unable to zoom beyond scale of 1:2,256 in QGIS?
That worked for me. Apparently the plugin ties the zoom level to match pixels with an available zoom from a tile source. Before uninstalling it, I couldn't choose the predefined zooms at the bottom of the UI, now I can set a 1:10,000, etc.. Thanks.

comment How to store and serve the time a GeoTIFF refers to
Geoserver gives some hints near docs.geoserver.org/stable/en/user/tutorials/… Basically one creates a directory of 'temperature_yyyymmddHHMMSS.tif' files and enables the geoserver to parse them into a collection of files, but you could use the same naming convention to help populate and update a 'gdaltindex' shapefile for mapserver.

comment Proj4 String for NAD83(2011) / Louisiana South (ftUS)
OT, but: If you are using a +k=??? scaling units markedly different than 1.0, then the easting and northing should be similarly scaled. I used a g218gproj4='+proj=lcc +lat_1=25 +lat_2=25 +lat_0=12.19 +lon_0=265 +k_0=8.20463003682238e-05 +x_0=346.906301484053 +y_0=-49.5724920086904 +a=6370000.0,+b=6370000.0 +units=m +no_defs' to translate between geographic coordinates directly into the grid coordinates of a model intended to match the grid from a nco.ncep.noaa.gov/pmb/docs/on388/tableb.html#GRID218 weather model. This scaled to the model's 12km pixels with the SW pixel at 0,0.

comment How to calculate area in km2 Qgis 2.0
There seems to be some room for doubt: 0.004008*cos(latitude)(1.852*60)^2=49.4894km^2 at latitude=0, and there's no latitude where the area will be 1.017* bigger than the equatorial area in decimalDegrees^2.
