Warping Options

The multi Warp steps can be seen here
gdalwarp busselton-final.nc -t_srs "+proj=latlong +datum=WGS84" -co "COMPRESS=DEFLATE" -r cubic output.wgs84.cubic.nc  -wo OPTIMIZE_SIZE=TRUE -of netCDF -dstnodata -9999

Both Warped products are also hosted for inspection and a verdict on warping options is required.

VERDICT: Warping has changed the product, each scientist will view this differently, it is not really the original data on a new grid - it is a derived product on a new grid.

Question: What does GA want to host? The originals (as is) or a common CRS (coordinate reference system).
