Null values not shown in coverage description

Priority: minor Milestone: 9.0
Component: petascope Version: 8.5
Keywords: Cc: pbaumann, pcampalani
Complexity: Medium


This is more of a questions: in petascopedb we have null values associated with a coverage, but they are not included in the DescribeCoverage for example. Not sure if they can be included?

yes, they can (and should, if present) go into the rangeType where it is foreseen by way of schema.

  • Owner changed from abeccati to pcampalani
  • Status changed from new to assigned

This ticket needs to be addressed by means of a change of dbschema in the SWE quantities, as NiL values are not supported yet (see #582).

I suggest to patch this ticket along with #573.

Petascope and petascopedb updated in changeset:352f985.
Now 1+ NIL values (value, and associated URI-zed reason) are configurable in the database in the new ps_nil_value table, whose PK(s) are used by ps_quantity.

petascopedb=# \d ps_quantity
                                 Table "public.ps_quantity"
          Column        |   Type    |                        Modifiers                         
    id                  | integer   | not null default nextval('ps_quantity_id_seq'::regclass)
    uom_id              | integer   | not null
    label               | text      | default ''::text
    description         | text      | default ''::text
    definition_uri      | text      | 
    significant_figures | integer   | 
+++ nil_ids             | integer[] | 
petascopedb=# \d ps_nil_value
                         Table "public.ps_nil_value"
 Column |  Type   |                         Modifiers                         
 id     | integer | not null default nextval('ps_nil_value_id_seq'::regclass)
 value  | text    | not null
 reason | text    | not null
    "ps_nil_value_pkey" PRIMARY KEY, btree (id)
    "ps_nil_value_value_reason_key" UNIQUE CONSTRAINT, btree (value, reason)

Graphical schema (SchemaSpy) has been synced too.

Next step is to the creation of a script to generate custom SWE quantities for coverages.
While this describes how to do it manually on the database, it is surely safer not to let user do that manually (see #667)
