Re: [wcsplus] [galeon] WCS 1.0 Plus philosophy and objectives

NOTE: The wcsplus mailing list is no longer active. The list archives are made available for historical reasons.

Unless I am mistaken, there is already a project that is looking into this from 
a CF standpoint, at least for a small segment: 'point observation' data.  I 
guess it doesn't hit the target directly, but I think some of the discussions 
may be relevant.

See enclosed email/links.

Subject: [CF-metadata] Working Group for Point Observation Conventions

We have a good number of people to begin work on a "Point Observation Data" 
convention. The hob of the working group is to generate a proposal to be presented to the 
CF committee.

If you are interested, send me an email, then go to

and subscribe yourself to the  cf-pointobsconvention  mail list.

All email of the working group will be publicly archived at:

You will want to be either interested in the nuts and bolts of netcdf and CF, 
or have point/station/trajectory/profile/etc type data and want to find 
standard/interoperable ways to write it to disk.
