Conventions from Data Discovery (from Ted Habermann) -- Clynnes 10:27, 4 February 2010 (EST)

Today during the interoperability rant we discussed the importance of consistent representations for documentation in order to take advantage of lessons we have learned over the years from OPeNDAP as we start sharing documentation in addition to data. I suggested that the ISO Standards are actually the equivalent of the DAP protocol in this effort. I also mentioned the draft Unidata netCDF Attribute Conventions for Data Discovery. These are available in netCDF, THREDDS and ISO at (this page has a self-signed certificate so you need a security exception in Firefox). That page has links to the original Uni data pag iv>I wrote the ISO crosswalk on this page and would certainly appreciate comments, questions or suggestions...
