XTCE13 — rangeForm annotation needs work

  • Key: XTCE13-73
  • Status: open  
  • Source: NASA ( Kevin Rice)
  • Summary:

    The rangeForm annotation is vague and needs improvement. There are two places it occurs – one at the attribute level with another brief mention at the schema type:
    "A value of outside specifies that the most severe range is outside all the other ranges: -severe -critical -distress -warning -watch normal +watch +warning +distress +critical +severe. A value of inside "inverts" these bands: -green -watch -warning -distress -critical severe +critical +distress +warning +watch. The most common form used is "outside" and is the default."

    The key problem is the term "inverts" is not really defined and so the entire explanation is overly general.
