Grid Topologies

Introduction

This page tries to inspect many of the different types of N-dimensional (spatiotemporal) gridded coverage topologies that could be stored in rasdaman, accompanying every case with GML Web Coverage Service (WCS) responses upon both trimming and slicing.

Despite some cases might rarely have a practical real-world example, here we want to give examples for as many allowed geometries as possible.

Slicing on a certain CRS axis means that its knowledge is removed in the output result, so that the dimensionality of the CRS gets decreased for each slicing appearing in the WCS request. However, this does not mean that the grid dimensionality gets decreasead as well: N-D grids can span an (N+M)-D CRS space, having (M>=0), so as long as the grids can exist in the sliced space, their dimensions will not be reduced.

When a CRS is sliced on each of its defined axes, then it can be safely removed from the output description. However, a CRS might be partially sliced on a subsets of the axes it defines, hence this prompts the issue of defining a CRS URI nomencalture to specify that only certain axes are considered within that CRS definition. Still the issue is open, so by now we will propose an interim solution: e.g. if slicing on longitude is applied on a WGS84 geographic 3D CRS (e.g. EPSG:4327, axes Lat, Long and h), then we will identify the sliced CRS as http://rasdaman.org:8080/def/crs/EPSG/0/4326?axes='Lat,h'.

All responses will highlight the domainSet of each coverage, which will all translate to some gml:Grid rectified or referenceable subtype. We will assume that warped grid will be described via ReferenceableGridByArray, although an alternative description via origin, offset vectors and matrices of coefficients is also possible. In case of mixed rectilinear/curvilinear geometries, a non-standard so-called ReferenceableGridByArrayAndVectors type [1] will be used, for a more compact and convenient GML description. Coefficients in a ReferenceableGridByVector are also kept optional, to allow mixing of regularly and irregularly spaced axis in a same geometry (see again [1]).

It should be noted that in some examples the type of the geometry gets simplified from a referenceable to a rectified grid (e.g. see case 2a-ITS). This might happen that trimming or slicing would extract a part of the whole grid with simpler geometry indeed (think of a time slice in an irregular time series of regularly gridded images). Geometry simplification is not mandatory however, nor it is prescribed by WCS standard. A regular grid can always we described via a ReferenceableGridBy* GML type.

When determining which CRS type should be bound to a certain coverage, the term SpatialCRS will mean any Earth or Planetary (or Image) related CRS, like VerticalCRS, GeographicCRS, ProjectedCRS, etc. See GML 3.2.1 (OGC 07-036) for more info on the available CRS types.

Finally, we will assume that all the time series will be referenced by the daily-resolution (UoM=days [d]) ANSI-Date CRS along the temporal dimension, which (by default) has a t positive-onwards axis. By default the composition order of spatiotemporal CRSs here is first space, then time; this however is not required at all.

NB. The axes labels expressed in the geometric domain of a coverage are the labels of the coverage axes, which here will be labelled as increasing numbers (0, 1, 2, ...), by default. Indeed, they are independent from the axes labels of its CRS, which are instead used in the WCS GetCoverage requests.

Topologies Index

Due to the high number of possible cases, hereinafter we propose a first main table for global view which puts purely-spatial types of topology per row, which can then be repeated, or evolve, in time with or without regular time steps (columns).
Each cell then links to a dedicated subsection with the GML descriptions (assume default namespace is "gml").

In the 1D case, it is also clear how the gridded coverages can cover datasets which are not usually associated with the concept of grids (e.g. trajectories)

Examples

Case 1

1D TEMPORAL SERIES OF ASPATIAL DATA.

This section covers time series of point observations with no spatial reference (or where the spatial reference was not considered relevant): in this case the only distinction is whether there is a regular time step between observations, or not. In its degenerate case, the series turns to a single point.

Case 2

1D SPATIAL OBSERVATIONS ON A STRAIGHT LINE ...

This section covers (time series of) point observations with spatial reference. In particular here we have a measurements which lie along a straight (and not curvilinear) line. Several sub-cases are covered, depending on the regular/irregular spacing between the points, the alignment of this line to one of the axes of the CRS, and the dimensionality of the encompassing space (i.e. the dimensionality of the CRS).

Case 3

1D SPATIAL OBSERVATIONS ON A CURVILINEAR LINE ...

This section covers (time series of) point observations with spatial reference. In particular here we have a measurements which lie along a curvilinear (and not straight) line. In this case, the only interesting distinction regards the dimensionality of the space (CRS) into which the points span.

Case 4

2D GRIDDED GEO-IMAGE IN THE 2D SPACE ...

This section covers (time series of) 2D geo-images which only span a 2-dimensional space (CRS). They can have different geometric layouts, depending on the regularity of the retained grid shape, going from a simple aligned grid with regular pixel size, to a completely warped grid like for instance would be applied to a raw unrectified spaceborne/airborne image.

(Attach a scan of the sketches here with all types in this subcategory?)

Case 4a

... with regular spacing, aligned with CRS axes.

Case 5

2D GRIDDED GEO-IMAGE IN THE 3D SPACE (oblique plane) ...

This section covers (time series of) 2D geo-images which transversely span a 3-dimensional space (CRS). They can have different geometric layouts, depending on the regularity of the retained grid shape, going from a simple aligned grid with regular pixel size, to a gridded curvilinear surface/drape.

(Attach a scan of the sketches here with all types in this subcategory?)
