The OpenGIS® Grid Coverage Service Implementation Specification defines methods that allow interoperability between software implementations by data vendors and software vendors providing grid (raster) analysis and processing capabilities.

The term "grid coverages" refers to satellite images, digital aerial photos, digital elevation data, and other phenomena represented by values at each point in a "raster" coordinate system (as opposed to "vector" geodata, in which digital map information is represented using polygons and lines). The specification describes an open interface ...

1) Overview

The OpenGIS® Grid Coverage Service Implementation Specification defines methods that allow interoperability between software implementations by data vendors and software vendors providing grid (raster) analysis and processing capabilities.

The term "grid coverages" refers to satellite images, digital aerial photos, digital elevation data, and other phenomena represented by values at each point in a "raster" coordinate system (as opposed to "vector" geodata, in which digital map information is represented using polygons and lines). The specification describes an open interface that provides communication between software systems for purposes of requesting, viewing, and performing certain kinds of grid coverage analysis such as histogram calculation, image covariance and other statistical measurements.
