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).
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 Grib.
All of them leverage on the Unidata NetCDF Java Library 4. (Actually supported formats: NetCDF, HDF4 (APS and Terascan Products), GRIB)
Gold Star Quality Assurance Check
IP Check: An header check is required and the review.apt file is missing for some modules.
Releasable: A few minor issues are present.
Quality Assurance: Test Coverage is at the 60%.
Stability: Based on the stable gt-coverage, gt-jdbc-h2, net.opengis.wcs modules.
Supported: User Documentation has been updated. The mantainers are active on the mailing list.
The main module of the framework is the coverage-api which defines a set of interfaces to access coverages.
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 2 plugins implementing the framework:
Two other plugins are present but not currently supported:
