Multidimensional Info

Description

This resource is supported at 10.3 and later.

The multidimensionalInfo resource returns multidimensional informtion of the service. This resource is supported if the hasMultidimensions property of the service is true.

Common data sources for multidimensional image services are mosaic datasets created from netCDF, GRIB, and HDF data.
