How to reuse the remote data set machinery for local data sets?

I think that the remote data set are great, in particular because they are donwsample and it is possible to let GMT select the resolution needed for each map.

However, some datasets won’t go to the server (due to lack of license, private/sensitive data, etc).

I wonder how can I do to reuse that machinery (to select the resolution) for datasets on my pc.

I know that I can use the scripts in gmtserver-admin to downsample my grid. But, them I don’t know how to proceed.

Should I put the results in my userdir/server directory and then edit the gmt_data_server.txt and gmt_hash_server.txt files? How should I do it? Editing those files would interfere with the remote data sets?

Is there any better solution?
