This document describes the linking of data discovery metadata to services that
provide access to further detailed metadata, the data itself, and services that
perform operations on the data. The DataLink web service capability is one such
service; it is an intermediate data access service that connects discovered
datasets to the downloadable data files, services that can act upon the data files,
and links to related resources.
