     6It is important for data users to get convenient access to rasdaman functionality, for manifold reasons: users want to stay in their well-known environments (such as QGIS, ESRI, or R); users have additional functionality in their tools which they want to apply on data retrieved from rasdaman; users do not want to learn yet another data language.
     7To this end, a large and increasing number of tools can access rasdaman today, thereby enabling these with flexible, scalable server-side processing of n-D "Big Array Data".
     8They largely fall into two categories, rasdaman-provided and "external" third-party tools. Below they are listed and explained.

    610rasdaman can interface with a large and increasing number of tools. Some clients allow direct query submission, such as rasql and directql. For rapid development of browser clients the raswct toolkit is provided.

    41 This plugin enables the direct download, processing, integration and usage of Coverages from an OGC compliant WCPS 1.0 enabled servers within the QGIS software (v2.0+ supported). The plugin has been submitted to the official QGIS plugin repository, approval is pending; in the meantime it can be installed manually:
    42 
    43 - get the rasdaman source tree:
    44 {{{
    45 git clone git://rasdaman.org/rasdaman.git
    46 }}}
    47 - the plugin can be found in directory `rasdaman/applications/qgis-wcps`
    48 - copy the `qgis-wcps/QgsWcpsClient1` directory to your `qgis-python-plugin directory`, usually located in `$HOME/.qgis2/python/plugins`:
    49 {{{
    50 mkdir -p $HOME/.qgis2/python/plugins/
    51 cp -r rasdaman/applications/qgis-wcps/QgsWcpsClient1 $HOME/.qgis2/python/plugins/
    52 }}}
    53 - now you can start QGIS and access the `QgsWcpsClient1` plug-in via the `Qgis Menu → Plugins → WcpsClient1 → WCPS 1.0 Client`
