Description (last modified by domlowe) (diff)

We need an ArrayDescriptor for CDML so in the CSML world it can sit under CDMS along with NetCDF, PP etc and just be another data format.

Ag to define what attributes are needed for a CDML ArrayDescriptor and Andrew/Dominic? to review in context of CSML.

When defined, will Ag ask the CDML folks(PCMDI) to add to standard CDML/CDMS?

comment:3 Changed 13 years ago by domlowe

The ArrayDescriptor? is a CSML construct to describe an external data source, so nothing needs to be added to CDML to enable this. The addition will be to CSML, where we'll have CDMLExtract alongside NetCDFExtract, NASAAmesExtract etc.

I think that this will just be the same as a NetCDF file. However, it will only work it CDMS is used as the I/O library to access the files. So, it binds CSML to CDAT for a good while if we want to support this. Needs more discussion.

Closing ticket. Agreed to use cdms for now.
