Data Point Metadata

Topic Version1Published11/11/2016
For StandardWITSML v2.0

WITSML 2.0 introduces that concept of data point metadata. These are additional data on a single data point, normally used to describe concepts such as quality, confidence, editor (if a point has been changed from the recorded value), etc. The Channel object contains a list of metadata data values that may appear on any given point in the Channel.

At this time, there is no standardization of the names or datatypes of point metadata. This may be addressed in a future release of WITSML.
