Re: [netcdf-java] [CF-metadata] ESRI implementation of ellipsoidal-earth

Hi John, hi all,

I know that for Topex/Poseidon and Jason-1/2 satellite data a specific 
reference ellipsoid is used. If ESRI pick a sample of Jason data, as far as I 
remember this reference ellipsoid is declared in the netCDF files. They can 
retrieve these data on this FTP directory:

Hope this helps.

Apparently ESRI is willing to add support for CF 1.5 grid_mapping attributes 
for ellipsoidal-earth/geodetic-datum definitions in the Grid Mappings and 
Projections specification.

They are looking for sample data, especially using ellipsoidal parameters 
(semi_major_axis/semi_minor_axis/inverse_flattening). Does anyone have any?

Also, they are wondering what to use for the default ellipsoid when these are 
not specified. It seems to me the obvious candidates are 1) spherical earth 
with a standard radius, or 2) WGS84 ellipsoid.
