Proposed netCDF attribute convention for dataset discovery



Hi all,

We've been working on drafting a document for a netCDF attribute convention to help facilitate dataset discovery. The attributes parallel the "digital library metadata" defined in the THREDDS catalog specification (http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/projects/THREDDS/tech/catalog/InvCatalogSpec.html). The attributes will be used by THREDDS tools to extract metadata from datasets and export to Dublin Core, DIF, ADN, FGDC, ISO 19115, etc. Here's the link to the document:

We would appreciate your thoughts and comments.

Thanks,

Ethan
