PLEASE SELECT THE DESIRED DATA SERVER FROM THE LIST BELOW
The Live Access Server (LAS) is a highly configurable Web server designed to provide flexible access to geo-referenced 4-dimensional scientific data. It can present distributed data sets as a unified virtual data base through the use of OPeNDAP networking. The LAS allows a user to visualize data with on-the-fly graphics, request custom subsets of variables in 1-, 2-, 3- or 4-dimensions and in a choice of file formats, access background reference material about the data (metadata), and compare (difference) variables from distributed locations. Also see http://ferret.pmel.noaa.gov/Ferret/LAS/ for more information.

OPeNDAP (Open-source Project for a Network Data Access Protocol) is a protocol for requesting and transporting subsetted data across the web as well as a software framework that simplifies all aspects of scientific data networking, allowing simple access to remote data. Local data can be made accessible to remote locations regardless of local storage format by using OPeNDAP servers. Existing, familiar data analysis and visualization applications can be transformed into OPeNDAP clients (i.e., applications able to access remote OPeNDAP served data) without having to worry about the format of the data. Also see http://www.opendap.org for more information.
The THREDDS (Thematic Realtime Environmental Distributed Data Services) project is developing middleware to bridge the gap between data providers and data users. The goal is to simplify the discovery and use of scientific data and to allow scientific publications and educational materials to reference scientific data. THREDDS provides automated catalog generation for data holdings, as well as embedded OPeNDAP and Web Content Services (WCS) servers. Also see http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/projects/THREDDS/for more information.
OpenGIS encompasses the standards and architectures being developed by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) that enable the integration of geospatial data and services into user applications. Also see http://www.opengeospatial.orgfor more information.
