     1= Rules for determining feature types programatically = 
     2 
     3First we assume that 'analysis code' is presented with one or more files. 
     4 
     5It needs to determine what feature types are contained in those files, but also whether a feature is actually made up of data in several files. 
     6For example in atmospheric model output one timeslice of GridSeriesFeature will look like a GridFeature, yet it would be wrong to model this feature as a collection of GridFeatures. The analysis code must therefore work out whether a "GridFeature" is part of a larger GridSeriesFeature.

     8The current* CSML feature types are: 
     9 
     10 * Point 
     11 * PointSeries 
     12 * Profile 
     13 * ProfileSeries 
     14 * Grid 
     15 * GridSeries 
     16 * Trajectory 
     17 
     18*currently under revision 
     19 
     20So what are the characteristics of these features?: 
     21 
     22 == Point 
     23 == PointSeries 
     24 == Profile 
     25 == ProfileSeries 
     26 == Grid 
     27 == GridSeries 
     28 == Trajectory
