17.3.1 DAS Data Objects
|For Standard||PRODML v2.0|
The DAS data objects were developed to provide an industry-defined, vendor-neutral format for exchanging the large volumes of data associated with DAS. It builds on recent work to define data-exchange standards for data associated with distributed temperature sensing (DTS), which is also part of PRODML.
Like all Energistics standards, DAS is implemented in software using standards-based technology, such as XML and HDF5. Developers implement the DAS data object so that software can read and write the DAS format, thereby allowing software packages to “exchange” data.
