Projected Data in LAS/Ferret?


I have US Albers equal area grids which I'm attempting to put into netCDF and display with LAS/Ferret. I'm able to successfully view a test grid with ncBrowse, but no dice with LAS -- in fact, no ferret.jnl file or log/GenericLAS_debug.txt files are created (modified) when I make the attempt. I've only done unprojected grids (degrees_north, degrees_east) before, and I'm not sure how (or if) LAS/Ferret handles projected grids.

Here are how the axes are defined in the LAS configuration fiel:

<ec_lon type="x" units="meters_east">
        <arange start="-2405000.0000000" step="10000" size="470"/>
<ec_lat type="y" units="meters_north">
        <arange start="255000.0000000" step="10000" size="295"/>
The netCDF file is only about 550 Kb, and you can get it at http://panther.ngdc.noaa.gov/dods/ec.nc -- DODS URL is, e.g., http://panther.ngdc.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/dods/nph-dods/dods/ec.nc.dds -- in case you want to look at it.

Thanks in advance,
