The EDAL (Environmental Data Abstraction Layer) libraries are a set of Java libraries used to manipulate and plot environmental data. They were created from the code of the original ncWMS project and are the foundation upon which ncWMS2 is built. This guide gives an overview of some of the core features and common use-cases for EDAL, all with examples. Each example program can also be found in the examples module of EDAL and can be downloaded, modified, and run as required.
