DAP Server

Geosoft DAP Server is able to efficiently catalog and deliver a broad range of dataset types, including very large geospatial grids, 3D voxels, images and vector data. In addition to inherently spatial dataset types other formats, such as Adobe PDF, ZIP, and other non-spatial file formats, are supported as Documents.

Below is a summary of supported data types in DAP 12 and support of DAP data services and features for each dataset type.
