- ingested image
- color balanced?
- value added processing (we hope - but you get what
we got plus more so you can fix it up to your needs)
SDMI Browse Bundle download (show available data)
pro/con user gets the raw/original data
... which is not a unified/standardized format/product
not a service you can integrate into your desktop clients
WCS (Web Coverage Service)
Would hope for similar benefits of WFS although it doesn't appear to be as widely supported/standardized as we would hope(?) - Who is using this yet? What clients/software can ingest it?
What do you want?
RAW, WCS, Grid, Other...
How do you want it?
Seamless style, Browse Bundle, WCS, Other...
