OpenEarth proposes a 3-step workflow for working with (1) raw data, (2) standard and tailored data and (3) graphics of data, see the graphic on our data philosophy page. There are many initiatives for catalogs of data to index these web-services, e.g. INSPIRE. On this page you'll find tutorials for all data, models and tools standards. We have grouped them into a list (top) and into a table (down).
