Metadata standards

From ICA Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This set of standards, with the exception of Dublin Core and DCAT, is also built on the domain reference model of ISO 19101-1, but, in contrast to the data model standards, which are focused on individual features and their characteristics, these standards are focused on the description of data sets containing information about one or, typically, many feature instances.

These standards describe metadata:


The table provides a more comprehensive list of standards related to metadata.

Name of standard Description
ISO 19109:2015 Geographic information - Rules for application schema Defines the general feature model and rules for creating and documenting application schemas for modeling features and their properties allowing physical applications to understand and share data
ISO 19110:2016 Geographic information - Methodology for feature cataloguing Specifies a methodology for creating catalogues defining features and properties for a domain of interest and/or a dataset and a schema for encoding in XML
ISO 19111:2007 Geographic information - Part 1: Spatial referencing by coordinates Metadata about/defining a coordinate reference system
ISO 19111-2:2009 Geographic information - Spatial referencing by coordinates - Part 2: Extension for parametric value Metadata about/defining a coordinate reference system using parametric values
ISO 19112:2003 Geographic information - Spatial referencing by geographic identifiers Metadata about/defining a reference system which uses spatial unit identifiers other than coordinates i.e. gazetteer, postal code, etc.
ISO 19115-1:2014 Geographic information - Metadata - Part 1: Fundamentals Defines metadata elements and schema for describing geospatial resources i.e. datasets and services; facilitating the provision of general purpose metadata describing the identification, extent, spatial and temporal aspects, content, spatial reference, portrayal, distribution and other properties of digital geographic data and services to effectively and comprehensively characterize those geospatial resources
ISO 19115-1:2014 Geographic information - Metadata - Part 1: Fundamentals Adds identifier to CI_Party and scope to MD_SpatialRepresentation
ISO 19115-2:2009 Geographic information - Metadata - Part 2: Extensions for imagery and gridded data Extends the original ISO 19115 defining additional metadata elements and schema describing imagery and gridded data and other acquisition and processing information.
Revision: ISO 19115-2, Geographic information – Metadata – Part 2: Extensions for acquisition and processing

NOTE new name

Extends ISO 19115-1 defining additional metadata elements and schema for describing acquisition and processing information (including imagery). This standard will provide a link to the XML schemas for acquisition and processing thereby replacing the need for a new ISO 19139-2.
ISO/TS 19115-3:2016 Geographic information - Metadata - Part 3: XML schema implementation for fundamental concepts Provides a schema for implementing ISO 19115-1 in XML
ISO/TS 19130:2010 Geographic information - Imagery sensor models for geopositioning Specifies a sensor model describing the physical and geometrical properties of specific sensors: Frame, pushbroom, whiskbroom, and SAR
ISO 19130-1:2010 Geographic information - Imagery sensor models for geopositioning Defines the metadata to be distributed with the image to enable user determination of geographic position from the observations
ISO 19130-2:2014 Geographic information - Imagery sensor models for geopositioning - Part 2: SAR/InSAR, Lidar and Sonar Specifies a sensor model describing the physical and geometrical properties for the stated sensors
ISO/TS 19139:2007 Geographic information - Metadata XML Schema implementation Provides encoding rules and a schema for implementing the original ISO 19115 in XML. To be partially superseded by ISO 19115-3
ISO 19139-1 Geographic information - Metadata - Part 1: XML Schema implementation This revision will only include the encoding rules for metadata
ISO/TS 19139-2:2012 Geographic information - Metadata - XML schema implementation - Part 2: Extensions for imagery and gridded data Provides a schema for implementing ISO 19115-2:2009 in XML
ISO 19157:2013 Geographic information - Data quality Defines the principles and components for describing, evaluating, and the measures used for reporting data quality. (Revising and replacing ISO 19113, 19114, 19138)
ISO 19157 Amendment 1 Adds coverageResult from ISO 19115-2:2009
ISO 19157-2:2016 Geographic information - Data Quality - Part 2: XML Schema implementation Provides a schema for implementing ISO 19157 in XML
ISO 15836:2009 Information and documentation - The Dublin Core metadata element set Cross-domain resource descriptions – not limited to specific resources
W3C Data Catalog Vocabulary (DCAT) An RDF vocabulary designed to facilitate interoperability between data catalogs published on the Web.
