Or more precisely, data and information access software ...

Three Main Components

  • NDGutils: standalone python egg with useful metadata and xml handling tools, including xqueries.
  • COWS: CEDA OGC Web Services, server stack.
    • Note dependency on CSML, and possible involvement of components to C-SEKT project to produce a WFS
  • MILK: Metadata, Information, Leads to Knowledge client stack for the COWS.

These components come out splitting the existing monolithic software stack into standalone software components.
