Known Implementations

The following WCS 2 implementations are known (P. Baumann, 2015-06-23):

  • open-source: rasdaman (WCS Core Reference Implementation), MapServer, EOxServer, GeoServer, GDAL, QGIS, OpenLayers, OPeNDAP/Hyrax, George Mason University, NASA GSFC, ...
  • commercial: Envitia ChartLink, Pyxis WorldView Studio, Constellation-sdi, Pixia, ESRI ArcGIS, ...

Plus there is a number of WCS 1 implementations. However (as expressed by the major version number difference), WCS 1 and WCS 2 are not compatible.
