    String history 
"erd.jpg is from NOAA NMFS SWFSC ERD (probably Steve Cummings).
The noaa20.gif is from NOAA.
The jplMURSST .png images were created by Bob Simons using ERDDAP.
The M1F1 audio files are from 
http://www-mmsp.ece.mcgill.ca/Documents/AudioFormats/
The small.* video files are from http://techslides.com/sample-webm-ogg-and-mp4-video-files-for-html5

"This dataset lets you test viewing various media files in ERDDAP. 
Use the /files/ option for this dataset and hover over the '?' icon for each 
file in order to view it.

WARNING: THESE WON'T ALL WORK! 
These viewers/players are built into browsers. 
Different browsers on different operating systems support different media file types.
Currently, no browser supports all media file types.
Some files work partially, e.g., the audio player often displays the wrong duration.";

Using tabledap to Request Data and Graphs from Tabular Datasets

tabledap lets you request a data subset, a graph, or a map from a tabular dataset (for example, buoy data), via a specially formed URL. tabledap uses the OPeNDAP (external link) Data Access Protocol (DAP) (external link) and its selection constraints (external link).

The URL specifies what you want: the dataset, a description of the graph or the subset of the data, and the file type for the response.

Tabledap request URLs must be in the form
https://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/erddap/tabledap/datasetID.fileType{?query}
For example,
https://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/erddap/tabledap/pmelTaoDySst.htmlTable?longitude,latitude,time,station,wmo_platform_code,T_25&time>=2015-05-23T12:00:00Z&time<=2015-05-31T12:00:00Z
Thus, the query is often a comma-separated list of desired variable names, followed by a collection of constraints (e.g., variable<value), each preceded by '&' (which is interpreted as "AND").

For details, see the tabledap Documentation.
