OpenEarth wiki philosophy

This wiki is intended to be a low-level area to share documents, links and knowledge snippets related to management of Data, Models and Tools. For the more sophisticated management of Data, Models and Tools the OpenEarth SubVersion repositories are used. The Data, Models and Tools and tools in these repositories will be shared via various levels of web services employing international standards like netCDF, CF parameter meta-data, EPSG spatial meta-data codes, INSPIRE owner meta-data, OPeNDAP (as running operationally for Rijkswaterstaat MATROOS) and opengis web map/feature/coverage servcies (WMS, WCS, WFS). The data collection procedure and the relation between those standards is explained in the figure below and in the Micore Data Standards document.
