I am looking for the best way to query a netCDF file - I would like to eventually expose this to an API to be consumed by a web service.
I would use SQL which I have experience in but I think its probably going to be resource heavy. I have looked into geoserver but I dont see any documentation on query this type of information only serving WMS tiles.
I have a grid of temperatures at different depths, I would like to for a given lat / lng find the nearest source (looking at just ground distance not vertical) of water at a certain temperature. For example lat 30.083 / lng -14.5 find the nearest location of water at 20c.
My data has an array of data points for depths from 5 to 5000m the query will need to return the lat / lng and depth.
