    <div class="moz-cite-prefix">Hi Larry,<br>
      <br>
      having an official statement should not be a problem, if necessary
      we can involve, eg, George Percivall or Carl Reed for nodding.<br>
      There are manifold reasons why one would not want to use WCS 1.x :<br>
      - no real interoperability (look at 1.x server implementations,
      they all come with their own client)<br>
      - insufficient testing - any WCS delivering correct metadata, but
      a black image, will be considered compliant by the CITE test<br>
      - no OGC maintenance (spec, tests, ...)<br>
      - monolithic = not extensible, harder to comprehend<br>
      - many places where the spec is ambiguous<br>
      - some outdated parts which are incompatible with other OGC
      standards today (OWS Common, CRSs, time handling, ...)<br>
      - no harmonization with GML, SWE, etc.<br>
      All this, and more, has been remedied in WCS 2.<br>
      <br>
      A piece of history: As we perceived that WCS 1.0.0 was
      underspecified we came up with 1.1.2 that was roughly coherent,
      but tried to be exact. The result was a spec which was not
      apprehended very much - although part of this under-uptake was due
      to the CRS explanations making up about 50% of the text - there
      are maybe 5 people on this planet who really understand this all,
      and I do not belong to them. So we went back to the drawing board
      to come up with a WCS 2.0.0 that is modular, easy to comprehend
      and implement, better tested, and harmonized. Today we have
      probably a dozen OS implementations of WCS (including MapServer
      and soon GeoServer), and uptake is growing rapidly.<br>
      <br>
      So migration to 1.1.2 is significant effort, too, as backwards
      compatibility was not as much an issue earlier as it is today, and
      it does not remedy all problems.<br>
      <br>
      Given that WCS 1.0 is 10 years old I definitely recommend to use
      the up-to date version of the standard.<br>
      <br>
      HTH,<br>

      <div>I'm in a similar position as Ulas, and my customer at NASA is
        really pushing to pass 1.0.0 compliance. I have seen on this

        2.0, but b/c of lots of lingering references to 1.0.0 ( and lack
        for 2.0 ) on the CITE site, I have been unable to convince them
        to move on.</div>
      <div><br>
      </div>
      <div>I'm looking for anything that truly marks this 1.0.0
        compliance test passing as a lost cause. If you have any
        documentation, official statements, etc. I would be very
        thankful. Currently as I peruse the CITE site, it looks like
        1.0.0 or 1.1.x are the most prominent ( I see little mention of
        2.0, and can't choose to test it with the online teamengine ).</div>
      <div><br>

      <div>Thanks for any help. At the least I'm going to take your
