Using griddap to Request Data and Graphs from Gridded Datasets

griddap lets you request a data subset, graph, or map from a gridded dataset (for example, sea surface
temperature data from a satellite), via a specially formed URL. griddap uses the
OPeNDAP Data Access Protocol (DAP) and its projection constraints.

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.

griddap request URLs must be in the form{?query}
For example,[(2007-10-21T00:00:00)][0][(-75):100:(75)][(180):100:(360)]
Thus, the query is often a variable name (e.g., sst),
followed by a set of [] for each of the variable's dimensions
(for example, [time][altitude][latitude][longitude]),
with your desired (start):stride:(stop) values within each [].
