to be updated and extended, from FP7 times (initially from EPN/IDIS meeting Nov. 2011, plus discussion at EGU2016 & inputs from Chiara, 6/2016):

 

Ressource Type

Description

Notes

Catalogues1D list of elements 
Catalogue Items0D list of elements 

Times Series

1D series of values depending on time

 

Image/Map

2D series of values depending on 2 spatial axes

This Resource type includes both Images and Maps. The difference between these two Resources being usually the Physical Parameter (Images for measured parameters, Maps for derived parameters).

Spectrum

1D series of values depending on a spectral axis

The spectral axis is a generic term which could be replaced by Frequency, WaveLength, WaveNumber, Energy, Mass, Charge... (relies on UCD)

Dynamic Spectrum

2D series of values depending on time and on a spectral axis

Same remark as for Spectrum + FoV is homogeneous (this is a 2D spectral cube otherwise)

Spectral Cube

3D series of values depending on 2 spatial axes and on a spectral axis

Same remark as for Spectrum + can be 2D spatial/spectral either.

Volumes
(or Mesh)

3D series of values depending on 3 spatial axes

This resource contains either series a values depending on 3 spatial coordinates, or tabulated values in a volumic grid.

Profile

1D series of values depending on a spatial axis

 

Dynamic Maps
(or Movies)

3D series of values depending on 2 spatial axes and on time

2 Comments

  1. Added Catalogue (a major one) + comments on spectral cubes vs dynamic spectra

  2. So this is the initial type list; the open Q was: do we need extra 2D types? In particular do we need to separate projected maps and images?
