The trio netCF-CF-OPeNDAP provides a powerful and complete software stack to work with
data as written in this OceanObs09 paper.

These netCF-CF-OPeNDAP standards are an important part of the suite of layered standards OpenEarth identified. netCF-CF-OPeNDAP provides standard data for grid data and vector data. For the full user range they need to be accompanied though by standards for exchange of relational data (PostgreSQL-PostGIS), for raw data (subversion), and for tailored data, graphics of data and catalogs of data.
