Xing’s Abstract:

Pomegranate is an open source python application that exposes science 
data stores, such as HDF and NetCDF files, in the web way. It implements 
the Webification-Science (w10n-sci) API. The core idea of webification 
(w10n) is to make inner components of a data store directly addressable 
and accessible via well-defined and meaningful URLs. We will discuss the 
nascent w10n-sci API, demo a Pomegranate-powered RESTful web service, 
and elaborate on how this enabling technology can lead to powerful Earth 
Science applications.
