OceanDrivers has created a full, compiled, and up-to-date THREDDS Servers listing, making its data available for its users in a single location. Users can view all the available data as a single THREDDS catalog and browse it with existing visualisation tools (e.g. “Integrated Data Viewer’s (IDV)”.
The THREDDS (Thematic Realtime Environmental Distributed Data Services) project is developing middleware to bridge the gap between data providers and data users. The goal is to simplify the discovery and use of scientific data and to allow scientific publications and educational materials to reference scientific data. The mission of THREDDS is for students, educators and researchers to publish, contribute, find, and interact with data in a convenient, effective, and integrated fashion.
Just as the World Wide Web and digital-library technologies have simplified the process of publishing and accessing multimedia documents, THREDDS is building infrastructure needed for publishing and accessing scientific data in a similarly convenient fashion.
