     156 * [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Coverage_Service Web Coverage Service]: a versatile, modular suite for accessing and server-side processing of coverages,
     157 * [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Coverage_Processing_Service Web Coverage Processing Service]: OGC's declarative raster query language,
     158 * [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Processing_Service Web Processing Service]: invoking geospatial processing services, such as polygon overlay, as a Web service.
