Specifications of view services for GMES Core_003 VHR2 coverage
For the so-called DataWareHouse concept (DWH) within the GMES Initial Operations period 2011-2014, data access management is funded through a Delegation Agreement between the EC and ESA. The Core_003 VHR2 dataset is one of the satellite coverages that are defined as CORE datasets within the DWH with fixed specifications which will be offered to a broad range of users and activities. JRC was asked by DG Enterprise to provide technical specifications for the implementation of a view service for the Core_003 datasets as part of the Administrative Arrangement n. 5 between DG Enterprise and JRC.... This report provides an overview about different view service types with their specific characteristics and use cases. Since compliance with INSPIRE implementing rules is a goal to be achieved by GMES services, the specific requirements of INSPIRE for view services have been taken into account. The Core_003 datasets have been analysed with regard to their parameters that are important for the inclusion in view services. Based on the results of the analyses, recommendations are given for the implementation of the view services as well as for the data processing and configuration of the Core_003 datasets.
