Significance of the File

system file with informations about an arbitrary number of different specific locations

File-Contents (in Catchwords)

The file is a sequence of different namelist blocks.

  1. Block FILETYP
    1. FTYP = filetype which should help to automatically identify the contents of this type of file.
  2. Block STATIC
    1. NL = number of specific locations which are contained in the file.
  3. Blocks LOCATION
    informations for a specific location.
    1. NAME = name(s) of the position (long-, code- and short name).
    2. NODE = ID and coordinates of the position.
    3. COLOUR = colour index of the position.
    4. DEPTH = depth at the position.
  4. (optional) block EPSG_GEODETIC_PARAMETER
    This block has to be present, if the file shall be converted into a CF-NetCDF file.
    1. EPSG = EPSG code for coordinate transformation (see EPSG Geodetic Parameter Registry).
  5. (optional) Block GLOBAL_STATIC
    Can be used to fill in global attributes before generating a CF-NetCDF file.
    1. NH = number of history lines.
    2. NC = number of comment lines.
  6. (optional) Block GLOBAL
    Can be used to fill in global attributes before generating a CF-NetCDF file.
    1. INSTITUTION = institution which generates the data.
    2. REFERENCES = reference of the providing institution.
    3. CONVENTIONS = NetCDF conventions which are fulfilled by the file.
    4. TITLE = title of the file.
    5. SOURCE = source of the file.
  7. (optional) blocks GLOBAL_HISTORY
    Can be used to fill in global attributes before generating a CF-NetCDF file.
    1. HISTORY = a history line of the file.
  8. (optional) blocks GLOBAL_COMMENT
    Can be used to fill in global attributes before generating a CF-NetCDF file.
    1. COMMENT = a comment line of the file.
  9. (optional) Block CODE_AND_TIME_INFO
    Can be used to fill in attributes to the depth variable before generating a CF-NetCDF file.
    1. CODE = phydef code to explain the meaning of the depth data [17,617,1149].
    2. TIME = reference time of the depth data.
    3. BEGIN = start time of the validity period of the depth data.
    4. END = end time of the validity period of the depth data.
