This page is about support of OGC web coverage services (WCS) in GRASS GIS.

Using WCS in GRASS GIS

One option is to register the WCS service via r.external.

First create ASCII file with this content, named e.g. "wcs_geoserver_LL.wcs":

 
<WCS_GDAL>
  <ServiceURL>http://demo.opengeo.org/geoserver/wcs?</ServiceURL>
  <CoverageName>Img_Sample</CoverageName>
</WCS_GDAL>

or simply download this file from here.

Start GRASS in a latlong location (EPSG 4326), then register the WCS file:

 
r.external input=wcs_geoserver_LL.wcs output=wcs_data

Then you can look at the map in the wxGUI map display:
