Service Use Cases¶
The Adaguc service can be used in a lot of different ways. It can be used to generate a transparant layer visualising data from a variable in a NetCDF file (for overlaying) or it can be used to generate a complete graphical product with a geographical map as base layer and several data layers as overlay .
In this case the ADAGUC service is used to sample data from the underlying NetCDF data files, through a special ADAGUC API, which is an extension of the OGC WMS GetFeatureInfo call. This way of data access through ADAGUC saves a lot of configuration work and issues in software that uses model data.
