Webservices GCMD Results Comply with Old XSD

Postby lmcgibbn » Tue Mar 28, 2017 2:13 pm

Hi Folks,
When I use WS to retrieve the following search

https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/ws/search/d ... ormat=html

The first result in the search result is SeaWinds on QuikSCAT Level 3 Surface Eastward Wind for Climate Model Comparison Dataset ID: PODAAC-QSSEW-CMIP1. When I look at the GCMD manifestation of this dataset (which exists at https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/ws/metadata ... ormat=gcmd), I see that the XML document begins with the following code

<DIF xsi:schemaLocation="http://gcmd.gsfc.nasa.gov/Aboutus/xml/dif/ http://gcmd.nasa.gov/Aboutus/xml/dif/dif_v9.8.2.xsd">

This is to say that the xsi:schemaLocation parameter points to a deprecated version of the GCMD-DIF Schema e.g. v9.8.2.

The current GCMD-DIF XSD can be accessed at

http://gcmd.gsfc.nasa.gov/Aboutus/xml/dif/dif_v10.2.xsd

I am not stating that anything is necessarily wrong here (I have not undertaken any XSD compliance checks yet) however it it worth me noting.

I'll be looking into this more over the next day or so, so i will notify if I find any anomalies.

Hi Folks,
Based upon my current understanding here are some open issues with the current GCMD v9.8.2 dataset manifestations which are being served via PO.DAAC Webservices

I'll keep adding to this list as I move forward. In my current task i am just manually mapping from all GCMD-DIF v9.8.2 --> 10.2 elements.

Your inquiry has been assigned to our PO.DAAC WS developer, who is currently out of town until 4/4.

As soon as he returns, he will respond to your feedback, which is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
