D 5.2 Standardization Report - Full

EarthServer-2 WP5 addresses “datacube” standardization in relevant bodies and, additionally, outreach work in the Research Data Alliance (RDA). 

In this report, we summarize progress made in the reporting period from M2 (August 2016) through M3 (June 2017). During this period spanning about one year Earth-Server-2 standardization work has led continued producing significant and inter¬nat-ion¬ally visible results in OGC, ISO, and INSPIRE. Also in RDA substantial and visible results have been accomplished. 

For the coming period, it is estimated that SQL/MDA and WCS 2.1 will become adopted as international standards. Further, results from the RDA Array Database Assessment Working Group should be available still within EarthServer-2.
