Transition to International Metadata Transition to International Metadata Presentation Transcript

  • Transition to International Metadata and other fun things to make and do NSGIC 2009 Annual Meeting Cleveland OH Lynda Wayne Federal Geographic Data Committee / GeoMaxim
  • Session Overview
    • Objectives:
    • determine if current FGDC geospatial metadata program activities address the concerns of the NSGIC geospatial metadata community
    • identify opportunities to enhance the creation and utility of geospatial metadata
    • Agenda:
    • refresher course
    • current activities
    • Transition Guidance
    • Implementation strategies
    • Guided discussion:
      • concerns
      • opportunities
    • Other funs things:
      • State PoC’s
      • metadata Working Group
      • and more….
  • 2004 adopted the ISO 19115 metadata standard 2005-9 US and Canada cooperated on development of North American Profile (NAP) of 19115 2009 published the NAP 2009-10 NAP Team to explore options for extending NAP to include ‘Entity &Attributes’ 2010 intends to process NAP as a federal standard Refresher Course
  • Current Activities
    • Integration of ‘Entities / Attributes’
      • addressed by companion standard, ISO 19110 Feature Catalog
      • some elements included in 19115
      • NAP objective is to fully implement CSDGM Entity/Attribute content
      • intent is completion within 2010 calendar year
    • ISO 19115 Five Year Review
      • pushing some NAP issues up
  • We’ve been very busy… so busy that…
    • ISO tired ….
    I need a NAP
  • NAP Guidance Documents

    • Preparing for International Metadata
    • North American Profile Geospatial Metadata Implementation Guide
    • NAP Desktop Reference
  • NAP Guidance Documents
    • Preparing for International Metadata
      • similar to CSDGM Workbook: Intro
      • who, what, when, where and why
      • in final draft
    • North American Profile Geospatial Metadata Implementation Guide
      • similar to CSDGM Workbook: Content
      • how
      • in outline
  • Preparing for International Metadata
    • Development of the NAP
      • Why change standards?
      • Coordination with the Canadian government
      • Standards bodies and processing
      • Federal vs. National Standards
      • Objectives of the Standard
  • Preparing for International Metadata

      • organization
      • best practices
      • multiplicity
      • multi-level metadata
      • new content
      • eliminated elements
  • Preparing for International Metadata
    • New Content
      • International
        • dataset language
        • data set character set
        • metadata language
        • metadata character set
      • Expansion
        • data quality
        • citation
        • online resource
        • maintenance
  • Preparing for International Metadata
    • New Content
      • Changed domains
        • extended
        • dropped
        • fixed domains
        • dates
          • numeric values only
          • nilReason=“present”
      • New technologies / services
        • web mapping
        • data models
        • clearinghouses/catalogs
        • ontologies, thesauri, classification system
  • Preparing for International Metadata
    • New Content
      • new elements
        • vertical extent
        • online linkage function code
        • portrayal catalog (symbology)
        • application schema (models and methods)

  • Preparing for International Metadata
    • ISO and NAP Metadata Software Applications
      • CSDGM to NAP conversion
      • metadata editors
      • metadata validation
      • metadata publication and distribution
  • Preparing for International Metadata
    • Implementation Options
      • continue CSDGM – no NAP implementation
        • + continued ROI on CSDGM investment
        • no increase in capabilities
        • challenges using NAP metadata provided by others
        • eventual CSDGM abandonment by metadata applications
  • Preparing for International Metadata
    • Implementation Options
      • create new metadata as NAP and convert existing CSDGM records to NAP as used
        • + greater flexibility with less mandatory more optional elements
        • + improved discovery and use of services
        • + more efficient metadata compilation - code lists & multilevels
        • + improved discovery via Topic Categories
        • time and $ for training and software
        • effective implementation requires strategic approach
  • Preparing for International Metadata
    • Implementation Options
      • create new metadata as NAP and convert existing CSDGM records to NAP
        • + similar to #2
        • + no need to translate upon use/transfer
        • + fresh approach encourages new ways of thinking and broader participation
        • similar to above
        • significant effort and possible production lags
  • Preparing for International Metadata
    • Preparing for Transition
