Peter and Paul church was used to photograph the shoreline of Waimea Bay beach park on the North Shore of the island of Oahu in the State of Hawaii. The oblique camera view presented here captures the entire breadth of the beach park looking outwards over Kamehameha Highway towards the southwest. It operated for over 4.5 years between February 5, 2009 and October 14, 2013. Capturing hourly snapshots at a set vantage point during the local daytime hours of 6:00 AM or 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM, these images are useful for tracking beach dynamics such as wave run-up, sand movement, turbidity plumes, and Waimea River outflow over time. The camera was mounted in the bell tower windows for a total height of 20 meters above ground level or 31 meters above mean sea level. See also beachcam_004 for an alternate camera view from the same location pointing further offshore inside of Waimea Bay.";

Using tabledap to Request Data and Graphs from Tabular Datasets

tabledap lets you request a data subset, a graph, or a map from a tabular dataset (for example, buoy data), via a specially formed URL. tabledap uses the OPeNDAP (external link) Data Access Protocol (DAP) (external link) and its selection constraints (external link).

The URL specifies what you want: the dataset, a description of the graph or the subset of the data, and the file type for the response.

Tabledap request URLs must be in the form{?query}
For example,,latitude,time,station,wmo_platform_code,T_25&time>=2015-05-23T12:00:00Z&time<=2015-05-31T12:00:00Z
Thus, the query is often a comma-separated list of desired variable names, followed by a collection of constraints (e.g., variable<value), each preceded by '&' (which is interpreted as "AND").

For details, see the tabledap Documentation.
