Hello ldm-users and gembud,
A new Unidata email list has been established that may interest some of
you. The list is titled 'data-curation' and has a charter of:
This mailing list is for community discussion centered on the curation
of Unidata-provided data. Topics include the provenance of observation
station metadata, usage of various data formats, and processing of
Unidata-provided feeds as related to both current use and long-term
storage of the data.
You can sign up by emailing 'data-curation-join@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' without
any special subject or message necessary.
The hope of this list is to discuss issues related to the processing of
datasets streamed over LDM and sometimes ingested by GEMPAK. These topics
are sometimes discussed on ldm-users, but perhaps we can go into a bit
more depth on this new dedicated list and have some more metadata folks on
the list than currently exist with ldm-users/gembud.
Personally, I plan to be spamming the list related to work I am doing on
cataloging Noaaport, WMO header inconsistencies, and general fun
rectifying METAR / SHEF station metadata tables.
thanks for your time,
