Arctic PASSION develops functionality in the data catalogue that are utilising web services. In the current situation support is enabled for OGC WMS and OPeNDAP.

OGC WMS is used to visualise information on maps. This could be satellite imagery, numerical simulations of the atmosphere or the ocean or other information suitable for presentation in a map service. Details on which map projections that should be supported will be provided later. If multiple products are attempted to be presented in the same map, the common map projection selected. In worst case, this is not a map projection that  is suitable for high latitudes.

OPeNDAP is used for dynamic visualisation of timeseries, profiles etc. In the current situation, only the timeseries visualisation is enabled. All these services will require data to be represented by the Discrete sampling geometries approach of CF-NetCDF.
