OPeNDAP is a framework that simplifies all aspects of scientific data networking.

OPeNDAP provides software which makes local data accessible to remote locations regardless of local storage format. OPeNDAP also provides tools for transforming existing applications into OPeNDAP clients (i.e., enabling them to remotely access OPeNDAP served data).

OPeNDAP software is freely available.

This is OPeNDAP's new Wiki-based documentation site. Here you will find documentation on the different components of OPeNDAP software; how to download, install and configure these components; future development and projects within OPeNDAP; and more.

We invite contributions from the community! If you would like an account to contribute to this site, please email OPeNDAP User Support.


User and Project documentation, Information about past meetings and links to technical documentation can all be found in this section.

To use the templates, you include the template using MediaWiki's {{ ... }} syntax. In a normal template substitution, the mediawiki rendering engine goes and gets the template text every time the page is rendered. If, however, the template name is preceded with subst: then the mediawiki markup is copied to the destination page and can be edited without affecting, or being affected by, the original template code. See http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/MediaWiki_User_Guide/Templates and http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Templates

To include the markup for a skeleton use case, as defined by the template below, include {{subst:Use Case}} in a blank page and then Save the page.
