Simple Geometries in CF

Priority: medium Milestone:
Component: cf-conventions Version:
Keywords: geometry Cc:


Dave Blodgett, others, and I have developed a contribution which augments Chapter 7 of the CF conventions with the ability to describe simple geometries such as lines and polygons. This is useful when encoding feature geometries for data variables like average precipitation over a watershed or velocity in a river segment.

We proposed this contribution on GitHub? via a pull request, in part to help test the GitHub? workflow for making changes to CF. This has been a bit of a struggle as we iron out the GitHub? kinks. In the meantime, Jonathan Gregory suggested that to move the process along, we open a trac ticket for this as a proposed change to 1.7.

I appreciate your consideration of this proposal. If more discussion of this proposal is required, I ask that you continue the discussion in GitHub?. Thanks!
