Giovanni time periodicity missing -- Erinmr 17:58, 25 May 2009 (EDT)

Xiaopeng, In the GetCapabilities for each layer in the time:

<Dimension name="time" units="ISO8601" />
<Extent name="time" default="2008-09-30T00:00:00Z" nearestValue="0">2002-07-01T00:00:00Z/2008-09-30T00:00:00Z</Extent>

We have include an increment 2002-07-01T00:00:00Z/2008-09-30T00:00:00Z/PT1H Can you add the increment? or How do you know what increment the dataset is?

We will re-engineer the Giovanni WMS. I’ll put that into the requirements.

Giovanni FGDC Service Checker Results -- Erinmr 17:59, 25 May 2009 (EDT)

Hi Xiaopeng,

The WMS checker from FGDC is back up and running. I ran the GetCapabilities from you through it and it does return some errors. See below:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>

Re: Giovanni FGDC Service Checker Results -- Xiaopeng

Erin, In your “GetMap” request, there are two parameters missing in the URL. First, in the URL, there must be an “EXCEPTION=XML” specified. Second, the parameter “STYLES=” has an empty value, which should have either of the followings:

  • latlonplot
  • latlonplot_corr
  • latlonplot_diff
  • comparisonplot
  • scatterplot
  • scatterplot_tavg
  • timestats
  • timeseries
  • timeseries_diff
  • hovemollerlatt
  • hovemollerlont
  • vprofile
  • crossmap_tp
  • crossmap_lonp
  • crossmap_latp
  • wmslatlonplot
  • animator

Hence, it should be something like “STYLES=latlonplot” etc.

Xiaopeng, It does work if we include the exceptions. In the WMS standard, exceptions is optional. Is there a reason that you make it mandatory?

Re: Re: Re: Giovanni FGDC Service Checker Results -- Xiaopeng

The Exception will be updated to Optional on the next version.

Giovanni Style/Image Size Issue -- Erinmr 18:05, 25 May 2009 (EDT)

Here is the flat WMS call with a map overlay to show that the decoration is south of the south pole and it makes the map offset. This map shows that when you call the [ WMS without the decoration that it is not offset.

Re: Giovanni Style/Image Size Issue -- Xiaopeng

I’ll keep you updated when I get to some point.
