The OGC netCDF encoding supports electronic encoding of geospatial data, that is, digital geospatial information representing space and time-varying phenomena. This standard specifies the CF-netCDF data model extension. This standard specifies the CF-netCDF data model mapping onto the ISO 19123 coverage schema. This standard deals with multi-dimensional gridded data and multi-dimensional multipoint data. In particular, this extension standard encoding profile is limited to multi-point, and regular and warped grids; however, irregular grids are important in the CF-netCDF community and work is underway to expand the CF-netCDF to encompass other coverages types, including irregular gridded datasets......
