1 Web Mapping Service Development For DMSP Satellite Data Chris Elvidge, NOAA National Geophysical Data Center Ben Tuttle, Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, University of Colorado 24th APAN Meeting (Xi'An, China)

2 Open Geospatial Consortium, INC. (OGC) A non-profit, international, voluntary consensus standards organization that is leading the development of standards for geospatial and location based services. A non-profit, international, voluntary consensus standards organization that is leading the development of standards for geospatial and location based services.

3 Web Mapping Service (WMS) Produce maps of spatially referenced data dynamically from geographic information Produce maps of spatially referenced data dynamically from geographic information A map is not the data itself A map is not the data itself Generally rendered in a pictorial format such as PNG, GIF or JPEG Generally rendered in a pictorial format such as PNG, GIF or JPEG

4 Web Coverage Service (WCS) A standard web service for exchanging geospatial data A standard web service for exchanging geospatial data Returns the actual data (not a picture as with WMS) Returns the actual data (not a picture as with WMS) Returns georeferenced data in formats such as GeoTiff Returns georeferenced data in formats such as GeoTiff

5 Goals A scalable method for data visualization and distribution A scalable method for data visualization and distribution Easy access to data via multiple methods Easy access to data via multiple methods Access Control Access Control Ability for clients to select an ROI Ability for clients to select an ROI
