The updates are:

  • Change NB_SAMPLE units from dimensionless to count (homogeneity)
  • Change Data_type of radiometry count, stored as NC_DOUBLE to accomodate their range, they should be  NC_UINT (32 bits unsigned integer), which is only allowed in NetCDF-4
  • Change dimensionless to count for NB_SAMPLExxx (+ corresponding fill values), the data type for NB_SAMPLExxx has also changed from "float" to "NC_SHORT".
