DAP (Data Access Protocol) client and server for Python.

Project description

The Data Access Protocol (DAP) is a data transmission protocol designed specifically for science data. The protocol relies on the widely used HTTP and MIME standards, and provides data types to accommodate gridded data, relational data, and time series, as well as allowing users to define their own data types.

This module implements a DAP client that can access remote datasets stored in DAP servers. The client downloads metadata describing the datasets, and builds array-like objects that act as proxies for the data. These objects download the data from the server transparently when necessary.

The module also implements a DAP server, able to serve data from different formats through a plugin architecture. The server is implemented as a WSGI application, and can be run on a variety of servers: as a CGI script; with Twisted and mod_python; or even as a ISAPI extension under IIS; for example.
