C.18.7.1 Temporal Coordinates Macro Attribute Descriptions

C. Temporal Range Type

This Attribute defines the type of temporal extent of the region of interest. A temporal point (or instant of time) may be defined by a waveform sample offset (for a single waveform multiplex group only), time offset, or absolute time.

The following Enumerated Values are specified for Temporal Range Type:

POINT = a single temporal point

MULTIPOINT = multiple temporal points

SEGMENT = a range between two temporal points

MULTISEGMENT = multiple segments, each denoted by two temporal points

BEGIN = a range beginning at one temporal point, and extending beyond the end of the acquired data

END = a range beginning before the start of the acquired data, and extending to (and including) the identified temporal point
