> Hello All,
> Apologies if this is wrong place to post this. But I would like to draw
> your attention to an open source initiative we have started:
> cf-json.org.
> The intention of this is to develop a standard around online exchange of
> climate and weather data. Based firmly on CF conventions for NetCDF. This
> was in response to the lack of any obvious standards for JSON. The transfer
> of weather data via RESTful services is now widespread and JSON is a common
> format for this. The geospatial community have geojson so we figured we
> need something similar. We are using this internally, but would be happy to
> see wider adoption.
> Pleased to have any feedback and/or knowledge of other existing efforts in
> this space.
> Best regards,
