NGDS Naming Conventions

This document provides an overview of the naming conventions used to facilitate interoperability with regard to web services deployed by subrecipients for the AASG Geothermal Data project, which is a subset of the National Geothermal Data System (NGDS).

NGDS naming conventions occupy a tricky organizational niche within the NGDS: until this point they have not been officially documented, but they are effectively mandatory in that web services that do not comply with these naming conventions are invalid and thereby not part of NGDS.

Consequently: understanding and using these naming conventions is critical to maintaining the integrity of NGDS.

This document is designed to facilitate the understanding and use of NGDS naming conventions.
