Convenience APIs

Lowering the barrier of entry for OGC Web APIs

Thumbnail of banner of server room overlaid with world mapThe OGC Data Access and Processing API (DAPA) - backed by example code for both server & client side software, scripts for cloud deployment & installation, and best practice guides - is a so-called “convenience API” that allows scientists and other geospatial analysts to run several operations on Earth Observation or other data using a single API call, in turn providing the data in a form directly ready for further analysis. 

As such, it takes most of the processing burden away from the user, greatly simplifying Earth Observation data processing and analysis workflows, while also enhancing the reproducibility of scientific analyses.
