Referenced Time Series

A referenced time series content aggregation holds a json (Javascript object notation) file with content designed to reference one or more time series hosted on a HydroServer and published using the CUAHSI HIS.  A referenced time series content aggregation may be created by either importing the refts.json file or by the CUAHSI data client 


An empty composite resource is created and a .refts.json file holding reference information pointing to a WaterOneFlow time series is loaded.


HydroShare recognizes this as a reference time series file and reads metadata from it, and sets the resource level Title, Abstract, Authors, Keywords and Coverage based on this metadata.  Reference time series content metadata is stored for the single file holding the reference information.
