Re: [thredds] CF Discrete Sampling Geometries conventions - final(ly)

hi Kyle:

If you add the conventions attribute and standard_name attribute on the station_name variable:

<netcdf xmlns="http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/namespaces/netcdf/ncml-2.2"; location="E:/work/kyle/CB3.3E.nc">
<attribute name="Conventions" value="CF-1.6" />
<variable name="station_name">
<attribute name="standard_name" value="station_id" />

it will work with existing code. I am working on recognizing the cf_role, per the final spec.

We have been putting off writing maaannnyyy files.  The whole idea is to bypass 
using a relational database to store insitu data.

We were planning to standardize to 9.5.2 (Multidimensional TimeSeriesProfile at 
a Single Station) in a hope that they will be able to be part of a feature 
aggregation set.  This will allow us to bring multiple station files (single 
point) into one dataset covering a large area.

We are only working with historic datasets at this point (no updating of the 
files in real-time).

I attached a sample file that I just started putting together today.

Any ballpark timeframe (weeks, months) of when the CDM will support
all or most of these conventions?
I apologize if I'm the 100th person to ask.

Just waiting (impatiently) for non-ragged timeSeriesProfile support!
Hi Kyle:

CDM supports it all, it just happens to be a slightly earlier version.
guess Ill be back working on this in 3-4 weeks.

Are you planning on writing new files? Which encoding will you use?

We finally finished the CF Discrete Sampling Geometries conventions
this is now an accepted part of CF conventions version 1.6.

https://cf-pcmdi.llnl.gov/trac/attachment/ticket/37/CFch9- may4.docx?format=raw

There were some changes in syntax - the CDM will be updated to
these. If you have concerns about backwards compatibility, please
contact me.
