This candidate OGC Best Practice extends version 2.0 of the OGC Web Coverage Service (WCS) Interface Standard to add support for requesting and returning coverage data formatted as JPEG 2000 (JP2), both as a static image and as a JPEG 2000 Interactive Protocol (JPIP) stream, encoded using either the classic JP2 format or the OGC GML in JPEG 2000 Encoding Standard.
