GSKY is a distributed geospatial data server exposing OGC services developed at the NCI.

In a few lines

GSKY is designed to:

  • Scale: Distributed solution that scales in serving large volume of data for concurrent user access
  • Work with raw data: Transparent ingestion of geospatial collections in many scientific data formats such as NetCDF, HDF or geoTIFF
  • Compute on-the-fly: No need to precompute products. Resampling and reprojection happen on-the-fly in real time
  • Standards: Implements OGC standards such as WMS, WCS and WPS
