What is OPeNDAP?

OPeNDAP is a software framework that simplifies all aspects of scientific data networking, allowing simple access to remote data. Local data can be made accessible to remote locations regardless of local storage format by using OPeNDAP servers. Existing, familiar data analysis and visualization applications can be transformed into OPeNDAP clients (i.e., applications able to access remote OPeNDAP served data).

Take a look at OPeNDAP Official Site answer to the question "What Will OPeNDAP Do For Me?".
OPeNDAP is a protocol for requesting and transporting data across the web. The current OPeNDAP Data Access Protocol (DAP) uses HTTP to frame the requests and responses. For details on the OPeNDAP DAP, see at OPeNDAP Official Site the "OPeNDAP Data Access Protocol--DAP 2.0 -- DRAFT" document.
OPeNDAP is a community of users working together to use, improve, and extend the OPeNDAP protocol and software.
