FieldTypedescribes a measure/observation/forecast of a certain quantity. A
FieldTypemay be a scalar (numeric or text) value, such as population density, or a vector of many similar values, such as incomes by race, or radiance by wavelength.
FieldTypehas an associated quantity from the JScience project since the goal of a
FieldTypeis to describe a
Quantity. Note that I am referring to quantity in the broader term here. As an instance a
FieldTypecould describe the bands of a synthetic RGB image. Now, there might not be a real physical quantity (like Temperature or Pressure) associated to such a quantity, but still we want to be able to capture somehow the concept of digital number as the represented quantity as well as the concept of the bands index or textual representation for the bands.
Note that in our proposal a
FieldTypeshall always contain at least one
