Cloud systems have raised the visibility of online data and users are becoming (more) comfortable using data that they do not first download as files. OPeNDAP has been building web services to enable access to remote data for over two decades. In this session we will describe how data providers can make their data holdings accessible to tools like Python/Jupyter Notebook, Matlab, and ArcGIS Pro with little or no reformatting. At the same time, we will also show how those same data can be moved to the cloud and accessed both directly, using the zarr API, and using an OPeNDAP server.

This session will also cover different formats that can be served using OPeNDAP. We will show how the Hyrax OPeNDAP server is installed and configured, with a focus on the most important aspects of the service, including best practices for using OPeNDAP servers as a component in a larger data system design. We will also cover demonstrations of various clients accessing the server and discuss built-in interfaces in different clients, so that providers can point users to tutorials they are likely to find useful.
