SOS time standard

legramo
Could anyone confirm in which time standard does SOS work? After checking the documentation and some threads like this one it's not too clear...

Is there any recommendation? Work always in UTC?

Thanks in advance

After several tests i can confirm that the observation's timestamp is stored always at UTC in the 52ª North Postgres database.

In addition, the JS client "Helgoland" always show the observations at the local timezone of the server where it's deployed.

Example:
RAW timestamp: 22:00+01:00 (CET)
Postgres timestamp: 21:00 (UTC, without timezone)
Helgoland timestamp: 22:00+10:00 (CET)

Hope it helps.

Hello,

Thank you for the clarification! It is now clear that the observation's timestamp is stored always at UTC in the database and in local timezone in the Helgoland/JS Client.

Do you know if it is possible to change the settings of the Helgoland client to visualize the timestamps according to UTC (and not the local time zone)? I am working with teams in different time zones and that would be great if we can have a common visualization based on UTC.

Could 52° North team suggest anything on this, please!

Thanks & regards,
Kanishk

You're welcome Kanishk! As far as i know, there's no way to configure the Helgoland Client in order to show the timestamp in UTC. Anyway, the backend works perfectly, and i can ensure that the data is stored using UTC and ploted using the local time zone.

I guess that the Helgoland's development team should answer your question. Good luck!

Hello Kanishk,

sorry for the late response, yes the client shows the data with local
timestamps detected by the browser. Currently it is not possible to
change this by configuration. If you are interested in this feature,
feel free to create an issue in the Helgoland repository. Than we have
this wish documented.

Best regards,
Jan
