Study on the feasibility of the WCS standard as an INSPIRE download service together with an initial mapping between required operations and WCS 20 specifications¶
The Web Coverage Service (WCS) interface standard is considered as a potential candidate for an INSPIRE download service which can be put in place in order to handle coverage data. A study was done in the end of 2014 and 2015 to:
- Identifying both the maturity of the standard, as well as the availability of clients and service implementations
- Map between the WCS 2.0 standard specifications and the operations, defined in the INSPIRE Network Services Regulation.
The results of the study are available below.
