    Hi all. I also apologize for missing the call. It was not in my agenda, but I’ve now added in future telecons for the first Thursday of the month. I was actually at the IOOS DMAC meetings this week, and data granularity and aggregation into collections were a re-occurring discussion topic there.
    I plan to attend the ESIP meeting, so look forward to that session topic Anna.

    Dear All,
    My apologies for not able to attend the meeting either.
    Thanks to Fotis for managing the call and taking the notes.
    For those who were not at the RDA P13 in Philadelphia, Bob gave an excellent presentation of the work from this task force. During discussion, we were notified a couple of other RDA groups (e.g Data Foundations and Terminology IG, Metadata in context WG) working on term definition. SiriJodha pointed me to this latest version of definitions from the Data Foundations and Terminology IG. The latest version includes “collection” (3 defs) and “dataset” (6 defs), but not “granule”. We may have a look of these definitions – each definition has either examples or explanation, is there any definition that fits our purpose here, if not, we may submit our definitions and examples of collection, dataset and granular to DFT IG for their consideration.
    There are good discussions and comments to the document: Dimensions of data/metadata granularity. I would encourage all to do the same – add your comments, new dimensions not be considered yet, current practices and use cases etc. We may not be able to address all issues from this task force, but at least we understand related issues and context.
    Anna: please let us know what we can help with your workshop session at the ESIP Summer Conference.
    Regards,
    Ming
