WCPS-Manual / storeCoverageExpr

The storeCoverageExpr element specifies that an encoded coverage result as described by its E sub element is not to be delivered immediately as response to the request, but to be stored on server side for subsequent retrieval. The result of the coverageList expression is the URL under which the result is provided by the server, and the server returns only the XML response part with the URL(s) being in place of the coverage(s) generated.

Let

Then

for any URI U
where

U = store ( E )

U is defined as that URI at which the coverage result is made available by the server.

Example

The following expression will deliver the URL under which the server stores the TIFF-encoded result coverage C:

store( encode( C, "TIFF" ) )

NOTE It is not specified in this standard for how long server-side stored coverages remain available; usually they will be deleted after some implementation dependent time to free server space. Future versions of this standard may offer means to address this.
