Update to variable names in sensor positions files
March 13, 2023
Sensor positions files published with instrument data provide spatial information about the physical locations of sensors. The variable names in these files have been updated to more accurately describe the contents of each column, and descriptions of each variable have been added to the variables files.
This is a breaking change for code referencing the sensor positions data by column name. The new column names will appear in sensor positions files in provisional data published after March 15, 2023. The new column names will be published with all files in RELEASE-2024 (to be issued in January 2024).
neonUtilities has been updated to reflect this change (see data notification "New version of neonUtilities (2.2.1)"). Sensor positions tables stacked by neonUtilities will use the new variable names, regardless of data publication date.
