The OGC "Geo-interface for Atmosphere, Land, Earth, and Ocean netCDF" (GALEON) Interoperability Experiment supports open access to atmospheric and oceanographic modeling and simulation outputs.
GALEON Phase I completed in 2007. GALEON Phase II started shortly after. However, Phase II is currently dormant awaiting the completion of the revision to OGC Web Coverage Service (version 2). Once WCS 2.0 work is completed, GALEON Phase II will restart.
Following is a summary of the Phase 1 activity.
