Breakthrough Listen Hackfest at the Allen Telescope Array
SigMF Specification Design
Description: We spent the majority of the hackfest working on the design of SigMF, both discussing current issues / gaps and working through new features and the direction of the effort. Major accomplishments include:
- A plan for using JSON-LD to link data, provide schema crosswalks, and define machine-parseable extension namespaces.
- The design of a top-level metafile that can be used to describe multi-sensor experiments, while still maintaining the independence of each recording.
- The design of a path to describe the capture hardware for a recording and the experimental setup for a multi-sensor data corpus.
- Numerous other bug fixes and "small" but important details of the specification.
