Issues

  • The current (V3.4 candidate) has a facilitytype code that is inappropriate, what is it for? (It half implies something about the intended sampling features and half the intended properties of measure.
  • Can we flesh out the distinction between facility and platform in the case of a network of observational stations. In this context one imagines that a WMO observational station is a platform which should be documented accordingly, and we might have national networks which are federated into the global WMO network. How would that work in MOLES?
