#77 fixed Add sinusoidal projection davidhassell etourigny

The sinusoidal projection is used in NASA's MODIS products, and is supported by PROJ.4, Snyder and OGC WKT.

The mapping would be simple as this projection uses few existing CF projection parameters.

Proposed text :



grid_mapping_name = sinusoidal

Map parameters:

  • longitude_of_projection_origin
  • false_easting
  • false_northing

Map coordinates:

The x (abscissa) and y (ordinate) rectangular coordinates are identified by the standard_name attribute value projection_x_coordinate and projection_y_coordinate respectively.


Notes on using the PROJ.4 software packages for computing the mapping may be found at Detailed formulas can be found in [Snyder] pages 243-248.

#80 fixed Add missing CF parameters to translate Coordinate Reference System properties to/from OGC Well-Known Text format davidhassell etourigny

1. Title

Add missing CF parameters to translate Coordinate Reference System properties to/from OGC Well-Known Text format.

2. Moderator

Jonathan Gregory

3. Requirement

CF-1.6 grid mapping parameters do not allow to fully represent Geographic and Projected Coordinate Reference System (CRS) definitions in Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Well-Known Text format.

The following WKT nodes cannot be transformed to/from CF-1.6: PROJCS, GEOGCS, DATUM, SPHEROID, TOWGS84, PRIMEM. In particular the absence of parameters that correspond to DATUM and TOWGS84 parameters can cause datum shifting errors.

Adding new parameters to the CF grid_mapping specification would allow to translate projected and geographic CRS WKT definitions to/from CF grid_mapping definitions without loss of information.

This is a simpler and easier approach than including the full OGC WKT string (as proposed in CF Metadata trac ticket #69) and detecting the potential conflicts between the CF and WKT definitions.

4. Initial Statement of Technical Proposal

The following grid mapping attributes would be added and described in Table F1

  • horizontal_datum_name
  • towgs84 (a double-precision array, with 3, 6 or 7 values)
  • prime_meridian_name
  • reference_ellipsoid_name
  • projected_coordinate_system_name
  • geographic_coordinate_system_name

The rationale for adding the various name parameters is to ensure a 100% compatibility between OGC WKT definitions and CF grid_mapping definitions and also to make the CF definitions more representative. In general, the names should be equal to the ones used in the EPSG database (see <OGP/EPSG>).

Named datums are particularly troublesome, as there is no unique naming scheme in OGC WKT (see <link2> and <CT>). The use of TOWGS84 parameters (inside a DATUM node) allow to approximate datum shifts to the WGS84 datum, but if precise datum shifts are required (using datum shift grids), then it is important that the datums are uniquely identified. It is required to follow the OGR/Cadcorp naming scheme described in the horizontal_datum_name entry for table F1 below (to ensure compatibility with Simple Features and CT specifications).

For reference the names and parameters of PRIMEM and SPHEROID entries from the EPSG database are provided in <link1> (prime_meridian.csv and ellipsoid.csv). DATUM entries, along with their transformed names and preferred TOWGS84 parameters are given in <link1> (horiz_datum.csv).

A similar proposal could be made to account for vertical CRS (VERT_CS in WKT), but this is outside the scope of this proposal.

As an example, the modified “British National Grid” example below would loose information if it were converted to and from CF-1.6:


The PROJCS, GEOGCS, DATUM and SPHEROID names are lost, but more importantly the TOWGS84 parameters also. The SPHEROID and PRIMEM parameters are recovered due to existing CF grid_mapping parameters, and the PRIMEM name is restored because Greenwich corresponds to longitude_of_prime_meridian = 0.

Changes to Table F1

horizontal_datum_nameSThe name of the geodetic (horizontal) datum, which corresponds to the procedure used to measure positions on the surface of the Earth. Valid datum names and their associated parameters are given in <link1> (horiz_datum.csv, OGC_DATUM_NAME column) and are obtained by transforming the EPSG name using the following rules (used by OGR and Cadcorp): convert all non alphanumeric characters (including +) to underscores, then strip any leading, trailing or repeating underscores. This is to ensure that named datums can be correctly identified for precise datum transformations (see <link2> for more details). Corresponds to a OGC WKT DATUM node name.
towgs84NThis indicates a list of up to 7 Bursa Wolf transformation parameters., which can be used to approximate a transformation from the horizontal datum to the WGS84 datum. More precise datum transformations can be done with datum shift grids. Represented as a double-precision array, with 3, 6 or 7 values (if there are less than 7 values the remaining are considered to be zero). Corresponds to a OGC WKT TOWGS84 node.
prime_meridian_nameSThe name of the prime meridian associated with the geodetic datum. Valid names are given in <link1> (prime_meridian.csv). Corresponds to a OGC WKT PRIMEM node name.
|reference_ellipsoid_nameSThe name of the reference ellipsoid. Valid names are given in <link1> (ellipsoid.csv). Corresponds to a OGC WKT SPHEROID node name.
geographic_coordinate_system_nameSThe name of the geographic coordinate system (GCS). Corresponds to a OGC WKT GEOGCS node name.
projected_coordinate_system_nameSThe name of the projected coordinate system (PCS). Corresponds to a OGC WKT PROJCS node name.

5. Benefits

By implementing this proposal, we should assure that data producers and software developers can include most of the datum information and other decriptive properties of specific projections.

This proposal is much simpler and easier to manage than the proposal in trac ticket #69, which is entirely optional and has failed to reach consensus so far.

6. Status Quo

Data producers are forced to add custom WKT entries to their data files without any standard, which does not promote interoperability.

#130 invalid Cheap Weight Loss Paleo Diet Online Review With Its Benefit cf-conventions@… fafduminy8

Not too long ago Health and fitness Solution evaluation Environment Report produced its annual position of the thirty two most effective meal plans for weight decline and well being targets. The paleo eating plan include in best five weight decline process. I'll describe why I still believe the paleo eating plan should be at the top with the ranking of meal plans. Truly the paleo diet plan is composed of the large amount of veggies, tubers and fruits, lean meats and fats, white and blue fish, seeds and nuts, and in many cases modest servings of other meals non-paleo as contemporary milk, black chocolate , rice or liquor when they're very well tolerated. If we assess the paleo diet Mediterranean diet program we can easily observe how very similar they actually are. We have to understand that the latter, now and sadly, will not be the same old diet regime in Mediterranean nations around the world in spite of its name. The Mediterranean diet regime was the fourth very best food plan while in the ranking, and opposite to popular perception, just isn't a food plan small in fats and superior in grains, as it is based on fatty foodstuff like olive oil, oily fish, dairy and nuts. The paleo diet program eliminates foodstuff that offer much less nutrients such as cereals and legumes and changed by much more nutrition dense and enjoyable foods. Paleo recipes are definitely the remaining established of downloadable guides made up of directions that can enable you to undertake the scheme Paleo meals and recipes. These courses counter include recipes meanings for life straightforward and fast refreshments to establish cooked foods for entire or more domestic and so are built to make super-effort to hunt foods and every recipe link is meant to make nutritious meals simply. If you need some authentic purchaser evaluate for Paleo Dieet then you ought to take a look at

Other diets labeled as most effective inside the position are according to supplements manufactured that has a large amount of substances which know their long-term effects. Your diet plan must not kill you. If nearly anything defines this electric power is the fact it demands limited to dull food, tasteless, laminated and low in salt and unwanted fat. Most paleo foodstuff are full of nutrition and flavor, diverse and gratifying, which makes adherence to this eating plan is much higher than those people scored as finest based on low-fat foodstuff, salt, cholesterol and flavor. Moreover, the Paleo Dieet isn't required to get rid of as delicious food items like eggs or meat, just enjoy their origin. And this causes a disadvantage in the paleo food plan, your price tag. Regrettably plainly we live in the entire world the other way up, a environment wherein to are living balanced may be the most costly. Scientific studies within the several hunter-gatherer communities that keep on being, show the sensible absence of obesity and long-term disorders including diabetes or cardiovascular. And compared with other eating plans controlled studies, the paleo food plan confirmed greater metabolic enhancements and pounds loss than many others since the Mediterranean and Nordic. I think about paleo eating a mix of environmental sustainability and effectiveness in strengthening world wide wellbeing. All of this doesn't minimize scientists to additional advancements and modifications within the paleo eating plan, averting effectively into dogmatism, and faraway from the chatter concerned that decides to determine a position of the way to consume to become healthful. Meat although the animals must be fed with grass and birds fed no grain turkey, hen, duck, and many others. It truly is to be sure to limit your consumption of substantial walnuts in calories, so it is best to limit only treats sweet potatoes & sweet potatoes are larger in energy and carbohydrates, making them ideal for after training as assist replenish glycogen levels. Some nutritionists say artificial sweeteners may confuse the body with the promise of sweets and encourage the consumption of calorie products in compensation. Brief reports of twelve weeks within the evidence that artificially sweetened drinks do not increase appetite and excess weight gain, even though researchers shouldn't have published a document until comprehensive the entire year-long study.

The rating of meal plans was divided into several categories: general, weight decline, diabetes, to heart disease, healthy ingesting, effortless to follow and best commercial diet program plans. The team of nutritionists My Eating plan analyzed the Paleolithic eating plan and identified weaknesses: diet seeks to imitate the power of our ancestors millions of years ago. It aims to prevent diseases of modern situations. If the cavemen did not try to eat certain foods, neither should we consume. Your Paleo diet program including protein at each meal, you increase protein consumption in general, which could accelerate bodyweight reduction. Should you started the Paleo eating plan and you're continue to not losing body weight, do not worry-still can make changes to launch your weight-loss. Nuts, nut butters and oils can have overall health benefits and be allowed by the Paleo diet plan, but are still significant in calories. While the Paleo diet program bans grains and refined carbohydrates, could be exaggerating the intake of fruits, Sisson added. Try exchanging the fruits to veggies, dark green, or get rid of fruit with substantial sugar content including pineapple, mango and apples and berries chooses instead. Change to a far more lean meat and fish instead of fatty meat, pork, salmon and mackerel can also help reduce your calories. The human body has evolved very little considering the fact that the pre agriculture 'Paleolithic' time during the history of mankind. It truly is assumed that because our hunter gatherer ancestors did not bear the consequences of many family problems we currently having habits of Paleolithic man ought to change for the better for us. Due to the body weight reduction plan with Paleo Dieet consist mainly of foodstuff and gathered and have not yet involve breeding or milled to produce them. Meat is known as a master of all paleo eating plan recipes followed by fruits and veggies and a hint of nuts, herbs, spices along with grains. The Paleo eating plans foods are intended not only lose body weight but also improve experience the following.
