Liping et al., "A Gateway to Support Interoperability of OPeNDAP and OGC Protocols," in 2006 IEEE Intl.
After data are selected and placed in the cart, there are several options for downloading, including HTTP, WGET, and OPeNDAP. For large datasets, such as 6-hourly atmospheric temperature, the OPeNDAP option is often the most convenient.
Although the OPeNDAP can perform such tasks, it is not as straightforward as the SSW, where a web interface is available for collecting user's input and generating a list of URLs for batch data download.
The data may be downloaded or accessed remotely via the Open-source Project for a Network Data Access Protocol (OpenDAP).
7) There was a wish to have scripts available to help downloading and to have Windows and OPeNDAP compatibility.
Although ACIS could support data delivery using methods that are more familiar to the meteorological community [such as Open-source Project for a Network Data Access Protocol (OPeNDAP) or Thematic Real-time Environmental Distributed Data Services (THREDDS)], its primary users have guided development toward other access methods and conventions that are better suited to the needs and competencies of users and decision-makers outside of the traditional scientific research community.
Even if the dataset can be read via a remote protocol such as Open-source Project for a Network Data Access Protocol (OPeNDAP), most of this work is still needed.
