Detailed Question

What is the data format of OPeNDAP servers encoded?

Answer

The data of OPeNDAP server's response is encoded using the XDR standard (eXternal Data Representation), and packed into the second part of the response document. For more information on XDR, see Internet RFC 1014. For further details, see OPeNDAP Programmer's Guide Section A.1.3.
