Characterization question

Hi Laszlo,
As Arnold already answered, you mention an example with two axes on
spectral content, distinguished in SpectralAxis ( Ansgtrom) and
RedShiftAxis (vel).
The Characterisation DM partly re-uses the STC definitions.
Characterisation v2.0 covers the description of RedShiftAxis (on progress).
I will be glad to work on an example of your metadata to check the mapping.

CharDM considers the Spatial axis is 2D or 3D . As in STC, resolution
will have the dimentionality of the Coordinate : 2D or 3D.

CharDM V1 and 2 consider the same units on all spatial dimensions.
Interesting to consider your use-case.

Sorry. Thanks for the feedback , will fix this.

Great! What about circulating an example of your metadata so that we
could check how it fits to what we have in existing data models and
what can evolve.
Many thanks, Mireille.
