IP Review:


The aim of this module is to define a new coverage framework which will allow to get access to multidimensional coverages (containing also Time and Elevation dimensions).

Module Status

The framework is actually composed of the main coverage-api module, the coverage-core, as well as several plugins to access multidimensional data such as, NetCDF, HDF4 and Grib1.
All of them leverage on the ImageIO-Ext 1.1 plugins which provide low-level access to multidimensional datasets by means of the Unidata NetCDF Java Library 4. (Actually supported formats: NetCDF, HDF4 (APS and Terascan Products), GRIB1)

Module overview

Coverage API

The main module of the framework is the coverage-api which defines a set of interfaces to access coverages.

Coverage Core

This module provides default implementation for the coverage-api interfaces, as well as core objects used to handle spatio-temporal information exposed as metadata.


Actually, there are 3 plugins implementing the framework:

  • HDF4
  • GRIB1
  • NetCDF
  • No labels
