This idea, as fine as it is, is not new to the list.
The most hindering fact is that there - AFAIK - is no Open
implementation of an Open database interface for raster/elevation data.
We have PostGIS, an extension to PostgreSQL which enables us to store
vectors/shapes/metadata in a database, but a standard for raster data
is still missing.

I hope Norman will keep us posted in case he has Good News,
