WCS 2.0 / EO Profile - GeoServer Implementation

Dear all,

this is to inform you, and especially the team which elaborated the WCS 2.0 / EO specifications in the HMA-FO project, that EUMETSAT and DLR support the extension of the GeoServer open source software wrt WCS 2.0 / EO. The extensions currently performed by GeoSolutions S.A.S. include the following points:

1) WCS 2.0 Support in GeoServer
- WCS 2.0 Core with KVP binding (GET requests), XML POST binding
- WCS 2.0 EO Application Profile

2) Support for WMS EO Application Profile Best Practice

3) Improving Raster Management in GeoServer
- Multidimensional Data as Input, incl. NetCDF format
- PostGIS Raster Support
- WCS Output Formats, incl. NetCDF and GML Grid Coverage Output
- Option for original NetCDF product file delivery

4) Improvements of REST Configuration for Multidimensional Coverages

We look forward the first results expected in early 2013 and the first experiences with our EO data. Later, we suggest a coordinated activity to validate, benchmark and consolidate the different WCS 2.0 / EO implementations available, with defined scenarios on existing EO data sets. This may also result in a specification feedback loop. We kindly invite ESA to support this.

Best regards,
Stephan

Meanwhile, with the ESA technology project Evolution of EO Online Data Access Services, we are able to follow-up on this WCS-EO activities. In this project we analyse typical online data access use cases as well as deficiencies in standards and technologies. For selected deficiencies the project consortium will prototype and demonstrate enhancements in open source tools and evaluate these with selected stakeholders.

Dear all,

I also want to thanks Stephan for the information. The support of these specification in GeoServer will be great.

Best Regards

Stephan, All,

many thanks for sharing this information. It is great and encouraging to see more and more uptake of WCS and EO-WCS in the community. I'm looking forward to validate and benchmark the two Open Source solutions both in supported features and performance. I hope we find some place and time to share ideas and learn from each other to improve the overall concept and the individual solutions.

Best regards,
Stephan
