Griddingmachine: making useful datasets easily available


This is interesting, and particularly so for the land surface community, as it seems that is the developers primary area of interest.

Not sure I’m a massive fan of their API/naming scheme, but it is simple and straightforward.

@gab I wonder if this would be useful for the work to get more TERN data accessible for CABLE.

Speaking of naming scheme, the following isn’t intuitive to me:

Spatial resolution (e.g., 5X means 0.2° × 0.2° grid)

2*2=5? Or is it because 1/5=0.2?

Yeah me either.

Yep, could be. Particularly if the versioning ties in well data owner/suppliers, rather than adding another layer of obfuscation. I’ve been thinking about how to manage this in meorg, so if someone is doing that already I’ll happy tag along.

me neither

one could raise an issue in their repo and point out these ambiguities
