Coverages Hands-On: Datacubes at Your Fingertips

Peter Baumann

(Submission #265)


In this combined tutorial and hackathon, participants get introduced to the concepts of coverages and serving them through WCS and WCPS, illustrated through a series of live demos and followed by detail, hands-on work. Goal is to address the full workflow, from coverage ingestion through servicing.

Participants coming with their own laptop can send requests to the sample service established for this hackathon to recapitulate demo requests shown, modifying them, and writing own requests. They will even be able to build and upload their own coverages to this server for subsequent retrieval.

Ample time will be dedicated to interaction and discussion. Notably, own work (“hacking”) is not required for benefitting from this workshop – ample explanations, real-life demonstrations, etc. will also be instructive for spectators.
