I'm glad this ISO 19115-2 / NetCDF metadata mapping can be of interest :-)

Sorry, this got lost in the cracks. We would be interested in incorporating
this. The main issue is handling the GeoAPI dependencies, which we are ready
to try to solve. Is this ready to try incorporating? We would do it for 4.3.
Yes, this is ready to incorporate at any time at your convenience. The
dependencies issue can probably be isolated by providing the functionality in a
separated module, so you can select which dependencies is acceptable for which
Some decisions that need to be done regarding dependencies are:
* Which GeoAPI version: 3.0.0 (the officially released version), or
3.1-SNAPSHOT (still under development). Normally I would recommand 3.0.0.
However in 3.1-SNAPSHOT, we are in process of removing the JSR-275 unit
dependencies (which has been rejected by the JCP) by a Unit interface, so
you can use the Unit implementation of your choice. Because the NetCDF
library has its own unit package, maybe the Unit interface would be more
* GeoAPI provides ISO 19115-2 metadata interfaces, but no implementation. So
you would need to choose whatever you prefer to use an existing
implementation, or write your own. Current choices are:
o Geotoolkit.org metadata module. Advantages: can marshal/unmarshal ISO
19139 XML, nice 'toString()' formatting, can provide dynamic view as
java.util.Map. Inconvenient: this is a dependency of about 1 Mb.
o Use the GeoAPI metadata demo as a starting point: Advantages: very
light, public domain (so you can put that under NetCDF license with no
obligation at all). Inconvenient: No ISO 19139 XML marshal/unmarshalling.
Then, the ISO 19115-2 / NetCDF metadata mapping code would use the library
Thats the main items to put in balance that popup from my mind for now...
