Corrections to Appendices A and H

Reported by: ros Owned by: davidhassell
Priority: medium Milestone:
Component: cf-conventions Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Appendix A:

  • cf_role, featureType, instance_dimension and sample_dimension should all be of type "S" not C or N.
  • It is not obvious that the "Use" should be D for instance_dimension and sample_dimension. The count and index variables are not data variables, but not coord vars either. Suggest putting "-" for them, and add to the key that "-" is for variables with a special purpose.

Appendix H:

  • Section H2: In the examples station_name is an auxiliary coord var and so needs to be identified as one in the coordinates attribute.
  • Section H2: _FillValue for the variables humidity and temp should be -999.9f
  • Example H8: coordinates attribute for pressure, temperature and humidity should be set to "time lon lat z"

I've not looked beyond Section H4 so some of these might apply there as well.
