COWS emphasises rapid service development by providing a lightweight layer of OGC web service logic on top of Pylons, a mature web application framework for the Python language. This approach gives developers a flexible web service development environment without compromising access to the full range of web application tools and patterns: Model-View-Controller paradigm, XML templating, Object-Relational-Mapper integration and authentication/authorization.
COWS contains pre-configured implementations of WMS, WCS and WFS services designed for serving earth system data using the Climate Science Markup Language, a web-client and cluster-enabled Web Processing Service (WPS) supporting asynchronous data processing.
