  3. 3. BackgroundBackground  three decades of GIS and spatial data capture technology  an eclectic range of academic disciplines using GIS as a research and teaching tool  considerable cost and time invested in spatial data creation *2006 spatial data audit at 4 universities: +500 dataset files, 100s of orphan datasets Requires a spatial data management, discovery and sharing solution delivered through portal technology and metadatametadata.
  4. 4. So what isSo what is METADATAMETADATA? The word appears to be of Greek and Latin origin…… but metadatametadata represents something completely different…… Photographic Images copyright: Jupiter Images 2006
  5. 5. Photographic Images copyright: Jupiter Images 2006 and it’s not sun and holiday
  6. 6. Represents a documented and ordered summary of information that describes something, in this case, a spatial dataset. Provides the What, Where, WhenWhat, Where, When and WhyWhy of a dataset, OwnershipOwnership andand ContactContact details and AccessAccess andand UseUse conditions. Think of metadata as a recipe for making beer…..Think of metadata as a recipe for making beer….. WhatWhat are the ingredients? WhatWhat are the brewing steps? WhoWho sells the ingredients or Wherehere can you buy them? Purpose of making beer?

  7. 7. WhereWhere is the study area represented in the data? WhenWhen were the data collected? WhatWhat is the dataset’s purpose? spatial reference system? spatial accuracy? type of application? processes or algorithms used? WhoWho supplies the data? WhatWhat do these polygons represent? WhatWhat attribute information is associated with these polygons? So why metadata?So why metadata? Can you tell me fromCan you tell me from these files…..these files…..

  17. 17. Metadata standardsMetadata standards  provide precise specifications;  enforce and ensure consistency and interoperability;  define and describe metadata entities and data elements;  classify and group relevant metadata elements with entities;  assign structure and conditions (obligations, data type, domain).

  23. 23. * An application profile is derived from a standard and represents a reduction of the number of entities and elements. * It should include the core element set of a standard to support interoperability across the wider geospatial community (DiscoveryDiscovery levellevel metadata). * Should include elements for DescriptiveDescriptive level metadata? * It can be extended to include elements which are best suited for a working group’s specific applications. Example: The Biological Data Profile (BDP)The Biological Data Profile (BDP) An approved profile with additional elements to allow for documenting biological information such as taxonomytaxonomy, m, methodologyethodology and analytical toolsanalytical tools. http://www.flickr.com/photos/f10n4/186861991/
