Metadata and Data Conventions for Interoperability
The ESIP Documentation Cluster plays an important role in understanding and evolving metadata and data conventions. Topics proposed for discussion in this session include:
a. A Metadata Compliance Checker based on open source software that tests data granules for compliance with the CF and ACDD conventions.
b. NetCDF templates - Means to generate CF and ACDD compliant netCDF files to each Search and Discovery
c. Normalizing/establishment of a NASA Extension of ISO Metadata. The need for more than a standard to establish viable interoperability.
