Hurray, JSON! Thanks, Jeff!
It’s just a detail, but should the numeric values be converted to numbers? For example, this line of JSON:
> "REFLECTANCE_MULT_BAND_9": "2.0000E-05",
could be replaced by:
> "REFLECTANCE_MULT_BAND_9": 2e-05,
This would mean one less conversion-and-check necessary on the end user’s side in order to use the value.
I won’t push on this – it’s a very small thing and it might add complexity in ways I’m not seeing. Just asking.
