Session Type: 
Tech Session
Kyle Wilcox, Applied Science Associates
Stephen Sontag

Public domain data about the ocean is all over the place. Different formats, different standards, and what about that metadata? Putting these distributed datasets behind OGC services allow for the visualization and analysis on an even playing field. By leveraging these OGC services, powerful visualizations for scientists and general users alike can be created and extended to almost any area of the world.

Applied Science Associates is a global science and technology solutions company. Through consulting, environmental modeling, and application development, ASA helps a diverse range of clients solve a wide range of spatial challenges.

This presentation will include practical examples of using OGC services to change the way we look at dynamic (real-time) ocean data.

Technologies include: Flex, OpenScales, NetCDF, AXIIS, Degrafa, SOS, WMS, WFS, AIS
