Potential Data Model Types

Types, or Constructs (the terms are used interchangeably here) are the data model constituents. An implementation may take these and instansiate particular Classes, Variables or similar to express the concept in the relevant way for that implementation.

For each candidate type, a link is provided here.

A candidate type should have:

  • a type name
  • a description
  • a list of CF conventions for NetCDF file entries which are instances of that type

CF Conventions 1.5 Candidate Types

Field construct

Dimension construct

Auxiliary coordinate construct

Cell measure construct

Cell methods construct

Transform constructs
