Equipping OPeNDAP with data citation functionality
posterposted on 12.01.2018 by Niklas Griessbaum, James Frew
Poster sessions are particularly prominent at academic conferences. Posters are usually one frame of a powerpoint (or similar) presentation and are represented at full resolution to make them zoomable.
We extended the API of the Open-Source Project for a Network Data Access Protocol (OPeNDAP) to generate citations that precisely match the requested data. We have implemented a prototype that allows software and users to query OPeNDAP resources for citations alongside the actually requested data.
