Poster sessions are particularly prominent at academic conferences. Posters are usually one frame of a powerpoint (or similar) presentation and are represented at full resolution to make them zoomable.
netCDF-LD is an approach for constructing Linked Data descriptions using the metadata and structures found in netCDF files. netCDF-LD enhances netCDF metadata, enabling information found in netCDF files to be linked with published conventions and controlled vocabularies used to express the content such as CF and ACDD. We are currently working on an OGC encoding standard for encoding linked data semantics into netCDF files and interpreting netCDF Classic files as RDF graphs (see https://github.com/opengeospatial/netCDF-Classic-LD/). This poster was presented at the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) Winter Meeting held in Bethesda, MD in January 2020.
