All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable
Enclosing class:
AttributeNames

public static class AttributeNames.Term extends Object implements Serializable
Holds the attribute names describing a term together with a vocabulary (or naming authority). A term is a word or expression having a precise meaning in a domain identified by the vocabulary. In the following table, the header lists the constants defined in the Attribute­Names class and the other cells give the values assigned in this class fields for those constants.
Names of netCDF attributes describing a keyword
AttributeNames TEXT VOCABULARY
IDENTIFIER "id" "naming_authority"
STANDARD_NAME "standard_name" "standard_name_vocabulary"
KEYWORDS "keywords" "keywords_vocabulary"
PROGRAM "program"
PLATFORM "platform" "platform_vocabulary"
INSTRUMENT "instrument" "instrument_vocabulary"
Note: The member names in this class are upper-cases because they should be considered as constants. For example Attribute­Names​.KEYWORD​.TEXT maps exactly to the "keywords" string and nothing else. A lower-case text member name could be misleading since it would suggest that the field contains the actual text value rather than the key by which the value is identified in a netCDF file.
