NetCDF Uncertainty Conventions presented to OGC

posted by Lorenzo Bigagli on 22/12/2011

On November 30 2011, the UncertWeb netCDF Uncertainty Conventions (netCDF-U) were presented to the Earth System Science Domain Working Group at the OGC Technical Committee Meeting in Bruxelles (see the Publications section for the presentation).

NetCDF-U is based on a generic mechanism for annotating netCDF variables according to the UncertML conceptual model.
NetCDF-U is convention-neutral, in particular it integrates with the netCDF Climate and Forecast Conventions.

The conventions are being improved and consolidated within the relevant OGC Working Groups and the CF-metadata community.
