Basic Metadata Functions • Locate particular Data in SDI • Evaluate characteristics of Data at site • Extract Database from site • Employ/Use Data to analyze problem
The goal for NAP CAN/CGSB 171.3-95 North American Profile Geospatial Metadata Based on ISO 19115/19139 USA CSDGM
Development Approach • Requirements analysis • Past experience with metadata standards implementation • Cross-table development (FGDC-ISO 19115) • Modified UML • Promote options to obligations • Extended codelists • Added codelists
North American Profile of ISO 19115:2003 Metadata (NAP-Metadata) • Selection of items from ISO19115:2003 • Promotion of optional fields to mandatory • Extension of code lists • Addition of values to existing code lists • Addition of code lists • Introduction of a multilingual register • Compliant to ISO19135:2005 onregisters • English and/et Français (and potentially Spanish) • Metadata items • Code lists • Register will be accessible on the Web • XML document • Web Services • Web Browser
Example Modifications to ISO 19115 Reflected in NAP • Extension of Code Lists • Language (M,1) • Language of metadata using standard ISO 3 letter codes • Language Country Code: e.g. ENG, FRA….. • Locale (C, Repeatable) • Locale • Other languages used in metadata
Current Status of NAP Project • Version 1.0 Circulated in February, 2007 • Currently reviewing comments & updating • Will circulate Version 2.0 shortly • Hope to have Profile competed by the end of the year
Summary & Conclusions • Much Progress since 2005 • Cultural & Linguistic Adaptability • User-friendly Specifications • Promotes Wider Use of Profile • Continue to Circulate NAP Documents • Develop Application Tools for Future
North American Profile - Metadata Perfil Latino- Americano de Metadata Future Cooperation
