ACDD - Documentation and Discovery
The Attribute Convention for Data Discovery (ACDD) was proposed almost a decade ago in order to bridge the gap between THREDDS and various data discovery systems. It has recently been adopted as a critical connector between netCDF/THREDDS and ISO as part of a suite of THREDDS metadata services and the ncISO tool. The ESIP Documentation Cluster is playing a critical role in the evolution of the ACDD as new needs and ideas emerge from communities and user groups. Members of the ACDD Steering Committee will report on recent progress and present ideas for the evolution of the conventions.
