SCR 3-1095

SCR 3-1095: Is every byte in a file required to be described (ex. HEADER)?

Priority: medium

Problem Summary

There is some disagreement within the PDS community as to whether or not every byte of data in a file should be described in the associated PDS label. The Standards Reference provides no crystal clear guidance on this issue. This disagreement should be resolved and the consensus spelled out clearly in the Standards Reference.
