The INCOIS Live Access Server (I-LAS) was setup at Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services to effectively deliver diversified geospatial products pertaining to Indian Ocean. The I-LAS provides free access to full suite of satellite-derived data products viz., sea surface temperature (SST), surface chlorophyll, surface wind products and number of products derived from objectively analyzed in-situ data. Further model analysis products from GODAS-MOM are also made available. Additionally climatological data sets from World Ocean Atlas 2009 are also made available for inter-comparison and generation of anomalies. Various functionalities for on the fly visualization and downloading of data are in built in to the LAS along with OpenDAP data sharing. Some examples of data usage from the LAS are also presented. It is observed that INCOIS LAS is being extensively used by various users and statistics of data usage is monitored on a regular basis and 100% uptime is maintained.
