Overview l.jpg

Overview

This presentation addresses four topics:

  • Topic A: Assessment of the ISO 19100 series and OGC specifications; identification of standards that have the highest priority in order to deliver a workable metadata system in the WIS plus such that are relevant for supporting the work of the data provision centres

  • Topic B: WMO Core Profile of the ISO 19115 metadata standard; identification of issues and recommendations; coverages vs features

  • Topic C: Metadata tools

  • Topic D: High level “road map”

Wmo information system wis l.jpg

WMO Information System (WIS)

  • In 2003 WMO approved the concept of a WIS. The WIS will provide a single coordinated global infrastructure for the collection and sharing of information in support of all WMO and related international programmes.

Topic a assessment of iso 19100 series plus ogc specifications l.jpg

Topic A: Assessment of ISO 19100 series plus OGC specifications

  • Identify a subset of the standards that have the highest priority in order to deliver a workable metadata system in the WIS

  • Identify a further subset of standards that is required to support the work of the data provision centres being designed by the WIS team

  • Note: The following assessment was done after a brief analysis and discussion of the WIS (metadata) requirements with WMO experts and is intended as a starting point for the future work within WMO

Iso dts 19139 xml schema implementation l.jpg

ISO/DTS 19139 – XML Schema implementation

  • „Given the abstract nature of the ISO 19115 specification, the actual execution of geographic information metadata could vary based on the interpretation of the metadata producers *). In an attempt to facilitate the standardization of implementations, this comprehensive dataset metadata implementation specification provides single UML interpretation and XML schema for carrying out the ISO 19115 metadata standard. This specification is meant to enhance interoperability by providing a common specification for describing, validating and exchanging metadata about geographic datasets, dataset series, individual geographic features, feature attributes, feature types, feature properties, etc.“

    *) and it does, see WMO Core Metadata Profile XML vs other XML encodings of ISO 19115

  • Composed of three essential parts in the Requirements Clause:

    • ISO 19139 expands Annex E of ISO 19115 to show all the metadata elements (Not XML Specific)

    • ISO 19139 also defines new constraint types to further refine the metadata elements for implementation (Not XML Specific)

    • ISO 19139 defines XML Schema for geographic information dataset metadata (XML Specific)

  • Community profiles may extend schema of ISO 19139

Status: Submitted to ISO as DTS (Draft Technical Specification), but not yet published  expected to be stable, but changes may still occur

Iso 19119 2005 services l.jpg

ISO 19119:2005 – Services

Scope:

  • Identifies and defines architecture patterns for service interfaces used for geographic information and definition of the relationships to the Open Systems Environment model

  • Presents a geographic services taxonomy and a list of example geographic services placed in the services taxonomy

  • Prescribes how to create a platform-neutral service specification, and how to derive platform-specific service specifications that are conformant with this

  • Provides guidelines for the selection and specification of geographic services from both platform-neutral and platform-specific perspectives.

Proposed amendment to iso 19119 2005 l.jpg

Proposed amendment to ISO 19119:2005

  • An amendment to Service Metadata defined in ISO 19119 has been proposed based on implementation experience and has been accepted by ISO/TC 211 as a new work item

  • Changes are proposed to the abstract schema, primarily concerning the relation between service metadata and dataset metadata. The extensions being proposed to ISO 19119 stem from requirements arising as a result of the practical experience being made with services in a Spatial Data Infrastructure in connection with and a nationwide catalogue service and the countries/states/regions bordering it. Hence the extensions are proposed from the background of usage within spatial data infrastructures, following the publish-find-bind principle.

Ogc catalog service 2 0 0 and profiles l.jpg

OGC Catalog Service 2.0.0 and Profiles

  • The OGC Catalog Service provides the ability to search and retrieval of descriptive information (metadata) on an information resource (dataset, service, schema, etc.) using the same set of fields, the same operations and get similarly structured results from different servers

  • The OGC Catalog Service itself provides an abstract catalog access model and supports any metadata model with abstract query points

  • Requires core queryable and core returnable properties based on Dublin Core metadata elements

  • Three protocol bindings: CORBA, Z39.50/ISO 23950, and HTTP

  • Expects companion Application Profile document to complete implementation

  • Two Application Profiles available (next slides), both are OGC Recommendation Papers (i.e., not yet adopted specifications)

  • Adopted OGC Implementation Specification, scheduled to be submitted to ISO/TC 211 for standardization

Iso 19115 19119 application profile of the ogc catalogue service l.jpg

ISO 19115/19119 Application Profile of the OGC Catalogue Service

  • Manages metadata resource types for data and service descriptions based on ISO 19115 and ISO 19119 (including the proposed amendment)

  • All characteristic metadata are searchable

  • Assertions can be traversed that effectively define data and service associations

  • Originated in SDIs in Germany and is in deployment in various parts of Europe

  • Uses ISO/PDTS 19139 for the XML encoding of ISO 19115

  • OGC Recommendation Specification, expected to become an adopted specifciation

GI standards and the WIS - Clemens Portele - 11.09.2005 33


Ebrim application profile of the ogc catalogue service l.jpg

ebRIM Application Profile of the OGC Catalogue Service

  • ebRIM = ebXML Registry Information Model (developed by OASIS, http://www.oasis-open.org/) offers a method for defining and managing interoperable registries and repositories.

  • General purpose registry that can be applied to describe data, services, schemas, documents, dictionaries, symbol libraries, etc.

  • Adopts ebXML RIM metadata model for query on small set of common properties

  • Can be used to implement the ISO19115/19119 Application Profile

  • OGC Recommendation Specification, expected to become an adopted specifciation

GI standards and the WIS - Clemens Portele - 11.09.2005 34


Topic b 1 consistency potential issues of the wmo core profile l.jpg

Topic B.1: Consistency / potential issues of the WMO Core Profile

  • The core metadata elements of ISO 19115 are included in the profile 

  • XML encoding: It is expected that ISO/TS 19139 will become the de-facto standard for XML encoding of ISO 19115 data

    • Recommendations:

      • Use ISO/TS 19139 (not a WMO specific encoding) at least we communicating with external systems

      • If more economic, it may make sense to continue to use the current proprietary encoding internally in a system

      • Create a two-way mapping using XSLT between the two encodings to verify that a lossless mapping is possible

GI standards and the WIS - Clemens Portele - 11.09.2005 35


Topic b 1 consistency potential issues of the wmo core profile36 l.jpg

Topic B.1: Consistency / potential issues of the WMO Core Profile

  • Catalog Service support:

    • It is expected that Catalog Services will be a standard mechanism to access metadata

    • Recommendation:

      • Map WMO Core Profile information to the core properties of the Catalog Service

      • Test use of the Catalog Service with WMO Core Profile

  • Extensions to ISO 19115 do not follow the extension mechanism specified in ISO 19115

    • Recommendation: Revise the WMS Core Profile to use the extension mechanism of ISO 19115 (and ISO/TS 19139 for XML Schema); see in particular Annex C of ISO 19115

GI standards and the WIS - Clemens Portele - 11.09.2005 36


Topic b 1 consistency potential issues of the wmo core profile37 l.jpg

Topic B.1: Consistency / potential issues of the WMO Core Profile

  • (394) allows only a single date and not a period

    • Recommendation: Delete “or period” (as the dateTypes all reference an “instant”) or use the metadata extension mechanism

  • (143) must be a code list entry but the WMO description suggests that other data types may be used, too

    • Recommendation: Restrict to the use of the code list or use the metadata extension mechanism

(n) row in the ISO 19115 data dictionary

GI standards and the WIS - Clemens Portele - 11.09.2005 37


Topic b 1 consistency potential issues of the wmo core profile38 l.jpg

Topic B.1: Consistency / potential issues of the WMO Core Profile

  • (39) is mandatory in the ISO 19115 Core metadata, but it is optional in he WMO Core Profile

    • Recommendation: Use a default value if data has no text in a language

  • (new) “irregularPointSet” is the domain of a multi point coverage for WMO internal use. For external use, the mandatory bounding box is used (currently codes are used to encode the irregular point sets).

    • Recommendation: Use the metadata extension mechanism

GI standards and the WIS - Clemens Portele - 11.09.2005 38


Topic b 1 consistency potential issues of the wmo core profile39 l.jpg

Topic B.1: Consistency / potential issues of the WMO Core Profile

  • (new) “keywordReferenceSource” is meant to extend the topic category enumeration which is too restricted to be useful for WMO; the element is intended to be a detailed reference to a hierarchical, multi-language dictionary

    • Recommendation: Create, Publish and maintain the dictionary in a registry; XML encodings can be based on GML = ISO 19136 gml:Dictionary (can be used to define hierarchical dictionaries) or ISO 19139 CT_Catalogue (supports dictionaries with multi-lingual entries)

    • Reference this dictionary through the thesaurusName citation

GI standards and the WIS - Clemens Portele - 11.09.2005 39


Topic b 1 consistency potential issues of the wmo core profile40 l.jpg

Topic B.1: Consistency / potential issues of the WMO Core Profile

  • (357) the axis orientation (signConvention) is part of the datum definition and not of the unit of measure information; however, this was considered important by WMO as it is a constant source of errors and ISO 19111 was considered insufficient

    • Recommendation: If the information shall be represented seperately, then an additional element should be defined using the extension mechanism to redundantly express this information – instead of encoding this in the unit information

GI standards and the WIS - Clemens Portele - 11.09.2005 40


Topic b 1 consistency potential issues of the wmo core profile41 l.jpg

Topic B.1: Consistency / potential issues of the WMO Core Profile

  • (new) HorizontalCoordinateType is redundant as the coordinate reference system of a geometry object is always provided as part of it

    • Recommendation: Delete this metadata element; if the intention is to provide information about the coordinate reference system of the data (rather than the extent information), then this should be provided via the “referenceSystemInfo” element

  • (341, 342) The definition of “polygon” is not consistent with ISO 19107 (which is used by ISO 19115); also, a polygon may contain holes

    • Recommendation: Reference the types specified in ISO 19107 Spatial Schema

GI standards and the WIS - Clemens Portele - 11.09.2005 41


Topic b 1 consistency potential issues of the wmo core profile42 l.jpg

Topic B.1: Consistency / potential issues of the WMO Core Profile

  • (351) If the temporal primitive is not used, this is not an instance of EX_TemporalExtent

    • Recommendation: Use the metadata extension mechanism to specify an extension of EX_TemporalExtent where “extent” is a TM_Period (“beginDateTime”,”endDateTime”) and “referenceDateTime” is added as an additional element

  • (new) CalendarType

    • Recommendation: Verfify, if temporal reference systems as defined in ISO 19108 (and GML/ISO 19136) are insufficient for WMO; if yes, create a metadata extension according to the rules; if no, delete this element

GI standards and the WIS - Clemens Portele - 11.09.2005 42


Topic b 1 consistency potential issues of the wmo core profile43 l.jpg

Topic B.1: Consistency / potential issues of the WMO Core Profile

  • (68) The note regarding the “useLimitiation” text is unclear. The data type is a free text, it is unclear what ISO parameters are

    • Recommendation: clarify

  • (285) Multiple formats

    • Recommendation: Encode as multiple MD_Format instances – not in a single “name” element

GI standards and the WIS - Clemens Portele - 11.09.2005 43


Topic b 1 consistency potential issues of the wmo core profile44 l.jpg

Topic B.1: Consistency / potential issues of the WMO Core Profile

  • (new) WMO_Source (WMO centre identifier, required because currently a private, non-TCP/IP network is used, a URL is not sufficient)

    • Recommendation: Use the metadata extension mechanism to specify the additional element

  • (232) See Topic B.3

GI standards and the WIS - Clemens Portele - 11.09.2005 44


Topic b 1 consistency potential issues of the wmo core profile45 l.jpg

Topic B.1: Consistency / potential issues of the WMO Core Profile

  • Other questions and recommendations:

    • (4) What are “standard character sets”?

    • (10,11) should be fixed for a particular version of the WMO Core Profile; example: “WMO Core Profile”, “0.2”

    • (187, 206): Do additional rules for the use and naming of coordinate reference systems exist?

    • (365): Do rules for unique identifiers exist?

    • (348,349): Does a list of well known Gazetteers exist? Are these online-accessible?

Topic b 2 key omissions preventing uptake of wmo data in other communities l.jpg

Topic B.2: key omissions preventing uptake of WMO data in other communities

  • Limited experience is available about which factors are key metadata elements and best practices to stimulate uptake of previously unknown data sets

  • Some recommendations:

    • Try to identify the questions asked by the (potential) users of other communities when looking for data that could be provided by WMO and assess whether the WMO core metadata answers the questions

    • Test the use of WMO core metadata using existing metadata tools, in particular how easy it is to execute the identified scenarios

    • Support metadata for both the initial discovery and the evaluation phase of metadata searches

    • Provide information in searchable registries, including codelists, thesauri, units of measurements, etc.

Topic b 3 feature types features and coverages in wmo metadata l.jpg

Topic B.3: Feature types, features and coverages in WMO metadata

(from ISO 19109)

Feature Types are defined on the schema level

Real-world objects (features) are instantiated as data; coverages are features

GI standards and the WIS - Clemens Portele - 11.09.2005 47


Topic b 3 feature types features and coverages in wmo metadata48 l.jpg

Topic B.3: Feature types, features and coverages in WMO metadata

Feature Catalogue and Coverage descriptions in 19115:

  • MD_FeatureCatalogueDescription is used to describe catalogues of feature types (not catalogues of features!)

  • MD_CoverageDescription and MD_ImageDescription are used to describe individual coverages / images

  • Some examples of potential WIS feature catalogues seem to represent individual coverages; this is not the intention of a feature catalogue

  • MD_CoverageDescription is not sufficient for the requirements of WMO and would need to be extended to address the requirements

    • It should be checked in how far MI_CoverageDescription of ISO/WD 19115-2 addresses at least some of the issues

Topic b 3 feature types features and coverages in wmo metadata49 l.jpg

Topic B.3: Feature types, features and coverages in WMO metadata

  • Coverages are Features. Coverage types are Feature types.

  • Probably both descriptions (feature catalogue and coverage descriptions) are required in WIS:

    • It makes sense to describe the types of features (including coverages) that are provided by the WIS, otherwise potential users will have difficulties discovering the „data products“ offered through the WIS

    • In addition, it may also make sense to include specific coverage descriptions in the metadata, if it is expected that users may search or look for specific characteristics of the individual coverages

Topic d identify high level road map l.jpg

Topic D: Identify high level “road map”

  • A high level “road map” for implementing a standards-based metadata system to achieve the goals of WIS depends on the time frame, available resources and other constraints and conditions

  • In general, an iterative, spiral development approach with manageable steps, gradually increasing scope and prompt validation is highly recommended

Topic d identify high level road map52 l.jpg

Topic D: Identify high level “road map”

Possible steps (based on discussions that led to this report):

Review results and update specifications / add additional or more detailed specifications

Execute test cases

  • Define scenarios and test cases for the metadata system

    • Scenarios for (meteorology/climatology) experts

    • Scenarios for other users with less know-how

    • ...

Set up Catalog Service serving the metadata

  • Review and update WMO Core Profile

    Clarify conformance issues

    Identify issues in the standards that do not address the WMO metadata requirements and report them and/or define WMO specific extensions (including ISO 19111, ISO 19108, ISO 19123)

Develop mapping to 19139
