General questions:

  • Should I traverse the data structure to see if there are any sequences?

Structures

  • Flatten
  • prepend name of structure with an underscore followed by the variable name. Keep track as there might be embedded structures, grids, etc...

Grid

  • Flatten.
  • Use the name of the grid for the array of values
  • prepend the name of the grid plus an underscore to the names of each of the map vectors.

Array

  • write_array appears to be working just fine.
  • If array of complex types?

Sequences

  • For now throw an exception

Attributes

  • Global Attributes?
    • Include global attribute to include URL that generated that new file
  • Variable Attributes
    • What about attributes for structures? Should these attributes be created for each of the variables in the structure? So, if there is a structure a with variables v1 and v2 then the attributes for a will be attributes for a_v1 and a_v2? Or are there attributes for each of the variables in the structure? Or both.
    • For multi-dimensional datasets there will be a structure for each container, and each of these containers will have global attributes.
