The Live Access Server (LAS) is a highly configurable web server and designed to provide flexible access to geo-referenced scientific data. It can present distributed data sets as a unified virtual data base through the use of DODS networking. Ferret is the default visualization application used by LAS, though other applications (Matlab, IDL, GrADS, ...) can also be used.
The server portion of LAS is written in Java and should run on any Ferret supported Unix / Linux platform.
