Due to some miscommunication with the NEWSGROUP creators, I must ask that the following people please recast their votes. I am repeating the CALL FOR VOTES so that those of you who still haven't voted might be inclined to do so. (The CFV is at the bottom of this message.) Again if your name/email address is on the following list, please re-cast your vote. I appologize for any inconveniences and for "stuffing" your mailboxes. Thank You Briand T.

PURPOSE: The purpose of the newsgroup "sci.data.formats" would be for discussing information related to the use of the scientific data formats such as HDF, netCDF, FITS, and various others. Topics of discussion could include problems encountered using specific formats, questions about where to get the code for data format programs, discussions of specific uses of data format programs, etc. It is anticipated that readers of the group would be scientists (and software developers) who use data formats/models such as HDF, netCDF, and other such programs. RATIONALE: There are many data formats designed specifically for scientific applications. Many have been adopted as a standard by scientific organizations ranging over such diverse fields as astronomy, physics, chemistry, medical research, health care, space science, atmospheric sciences, earth sciences and environmental science. It is hoped that the creation of the group, "sci.data.formats" will encourage and facilitate a greater amount of collaboration and sharing of information and experience between individuals and groups. VOTING: ALL Votes should be sent to: briand@xxxxxxxxxxxxx (A reply to this post should go to this address) The Voting period will be April 9th thru Monday, May 3rd, at 5pm. FOR VOTING YES: Please include the following line in your subject: I vote YES for sci.data.formats FOR VOTING NO: Please include the following line in your subject: I vote NO for sci.data.formats Only the your last vote will be counted. Votes must be unambiguous.
