Talk:Standards Implementation Virtual Workshops
From Federation of Earth Science Information Partners
Questions and notes from Friday's Call -- Erinmr 18:02, 9 March 2010 (EST)
*** This will be moved to a more appropriate spot ***
- Have you considered making older services WCS-compliant to allow for more metadata description in order to make services self-describing?
- Need to follow-up
- Airnow is using API Key for monitoring. Any issues with that?
- Stefan asked if considered Open ID
- Need to follow up with NASA group working on Open ID (Karen)
- What is difference between coverage and identifier
- Kari - coverage and identifier are same thing. In 1.1 coverage was changed to identifier
- Is it ok that identifier = point?
- Airnow uses AQS parameter, duration code, unit names - These are all things that need conventions within community
- Airnow also uses Bbox and time sequence (returns both UTC and local)
- Need a place to collect conventions that group is using.
Four ways to classify WCS Issues:
- Issues that are defined within the standard
- Which standard version(s) are you implementing?
- Extensions of the standard
- Other conventions like parameter/units
- When do standards matter/when do they not?
- For those datasets that should be reusable to those not familiar with particular decisions made - standard should be followed
- Datasets that follow community agreed on conventions can be shared within group that adheres to those conventions
- Some datasets will not fit into conventions or standards and always need special arrangements
- How to implement bbox for point?
- Airnow - single point can give time series, but bbox only gives map view.
- Datafed maintained bbox in the WCS point implementation
