O Pe NDAP/Kepler Data Model Resolution

The OPeNDAP data model (aka the DAP2 data model) supports more complex data objects than the Kepler/Ptolmey data model. In particular DAP2 supports deeper hierarchies and N-imensional arrays. Although these data can find logical representations in Kepler/Ptolmey the end result is:

  1. Poorly optimized in memory (unless the data is represented as a Ptolmey matrix type)
  2. Not really available to the existing Kepler/Ptolmey actorsuite due to it's inherent complexity.
