In meteorology, hydrology, climate science and oceanography, petabytes of geospatial data are stored in NetCDF, HDF5 or GRIB files and distributed via technologies such as the OPeNDAP.org HYRAX server, PyDAP server or THREDDS Data Server. These servers all provide the OPeNDAP data service, and some supply WMS services, WCS services, SOS services, etc. Often the datasets are CF (Climate and Forecast Convention) http://cf-pcmdi.llnl.gov/documents/cf-conventions/1.6/cf-conventions.html compliant, which means that data extracted from these systems via OPeNDAP have unambiguous geospatial information sufficient to be ingested into traditional GIS or other goespatial applications.
Some questions related to these geospatial technologies have appears on stackoverflow, but I'm wondering whether they might be more appropriate here, as the gap seems to be closing between the traditional GIS community and the traditional 4D massive scientific data community.
I feel that asking these questions here would help bring these communities togther even more, which I think would be a good thing, but I don't want to annoy this group if I'm wrong.
So the question is: should this community start asking questions on gis.stackexchange, or continue on stackoverflow?
