Openadap.net: a community-based sharing system
OpenAdap.net is an Open Source project aimed at breaking the barriers existing in the flow of data access and data processing. The infrastructure will make possible the dissemination of resources like knowledge, tools or data, their exposure to evaluation in ways that might be unanticipated and hence support the emergence of communities of users around a specific domain.
