This tutorial provides (i) a general introduction to web standards for geospatial data and (ii) practical hands-on exercises how to access, retrieve and process data served with a WCS server.After working through the tutorial, you should have a clearer idea of
- OGC standards for geospatial data in general,
- the purpose and importance of the WCS and WCPS standards,
- how data can be accessed, processed and retrieved with the help of a WC(P)S, and
- how WC(P)S requests can easily be integrated into processing routines or used to build custom web-applications.
