Definition of Flag conversions used for mapping external data quality flags to DELFT-FEWS data quality flags

schema location

Obsolete since version 2008.01. Since version 2016.01 this config file is no longer supported. The are ignored when still in the database but can no longer be uploaded with the config manager.

Each FlagConversion to support mapping external to internal data quality flags configured in DELFT-FEWS can be registered in the FlagConversionDescriptors configuration.

From Delft-FEWS version 2008.03 it is no longer required to identify the FlagConversion to DELFT-FEWS. If this FlagConversionDescriptors file does NOT exist or the individual reference to an FlagConversion is not present, the system will assume the corresponding FlagConversion file exist within the FlagConversionsFiles directory. This functionality is similar for IdMap(Descriptors), UnitConversion(Descriptors) and TravelTimes(Descriptors)

When available on the file system, the name of the XML file for configuring the FlagConversions is for example:

FlagConversions 1.00 default.xml

FlagConversions                         Fixed file name for the FlagConversions configuration

1.00                                            Version number

default                                       Flag to indicate the version is the default configuration (otherwise omitted).
