Multi-Dimensional Raster Database. It provides agile analytics on massive multidimensional arrays, such as regular and irregular spatio-temporal grids. Its patented architecture is rigorously designed for performance and scalability, Existing databases exceed 100s of Terabytes and are going Petabyte; array queries have been split across more than 1,000 cloud nodes.
Spatio-temporal coverages appear in many of INSPIRE Annexes II and III, for this reason, INSPIRE based on the OGC WCS Standard has released a Technical Guidance for the implementation of INSPIRE Download Services using Web Coverage Services (WCS) .
Rasdaman offers support for the INSPIRE scenarios by providing:
- federation capabilities, establishing a single seamless information space
- particularly high performance (as confirmed by many data centers and agencies)
- as OGC WCS Core Reference Implementation, the most comprehensive support for WCS and its extensions - in particular the WCPS geo raster query language
- support for a plethora of data formats.
