Data and metadata Channels

A set of thematic

channels based

upon ISO Topic

Categories Channels

Additional channels based upon:

  • Applications,

    e.g., Homeland Security

  • Current events,

    e.g., Hurricanes

  • Historic events,

    e.g., Lewis and Clark

  • Communities,

    e.g., Rural Communities Channels Channel Content

  • Featured Data Resources

    • community gold standards

    • widely used resources

    • unique applications

    • timely applications

    • represent breadth of the community Channel Content

  • Web-mapping Services

    • data viewers

    • web-mapping

  • Applications

    • data query

    • data analyses

    • interactive data Channel Content

  • Information Resources

    • conferences and meetings

    • events

Utilities and CommunicationsFCC Channel Stewards


  • focus is on thematic channels

  • initial stewards are federal agencies


  • interest channels under development

  • any organization can serve as Steward Channel Stewards


  • channel layout

  • subchannels, e.g. society includes:

    demographic, criminal justice, archaeological, education, recreation

  • select featured content

  • coordinate advisory group of ‘contributors’

  • maintain site content and active links Channel Contributor

Metadata Collection Managers:

  • Insert Channel Themes (ISO Topic Categories) into metadata records

    • for homogenous collection, simple scripting

    • for heterogeneous collection, greater challenge

  • Register your metadata collection at

    • provide lookup table if unable to insert themes in actual metadata per Step One.

  • Contact Channel Manager to nominate content Channel Contributor

Data Managers:

  • Insert Channel Themes (ISO Topic Categories) into metadata records

  • Upload your metadata into a registered metadata collection


    Register as Publisher at and

    directly upload metadata (XML) to

  • Contact Channel Manager to nominate content Channel Contributor


  • maintain data and metadata and URLs

  • create operational metadata**

    • Topic Categories as Theme Keywords

    • Links to metadata, data, applications, services

  • publish metadata in accessible collection**

    **more details in the next NSDI session participation
