Open-source Project for a Network Data Access Protocol

Project Description
OPeNDAP is a framework that simplifies all aspects of scientific data
networking, allowing simple access to remote data. OPeNDAP provides software
which makes local data accessible to remote locations regardless of local
storage format. OPeNDAP is a protocol for requesting and transporting data
across the web. The current OPeNDAP Data Access Protocol (DAP) uses HTTP to
frame the requests and responses. OPeNDAP also provides tools for transforming
existing applications into OPeNDAP clients (i.e., enabling them to remotely
access OPeNDAP served data).

More information, software for download, and software installation
documentation are available at the OPeNDAP web site: http://opendap.org/
