  • Permits applications to operate under known conditions
standards organizations
Standards Organizations
  • International Organization of Standarization (ISO-TC 211)
  • National Standards Organizations
    • American National Standards Institute
    • National Institute of Standards and Technology
    • FGDC- Established standards with concensus from fed, Tribal, state, and local govts, academia

    • ANSI adoption 12/24/2003
  • ISO 19139
    • XML model
    • Implementation Standard (ISO 19115)
    • Community review- Spring/summer 2004
    • Technical Specification designation November/December 2004
iso advantages over csdgm
ISO advantages over CSDGM
  • Controlled vocabularies- Code Lists
    • Multi-lingual
  • Granularity
    • Feature level metadata
fgdc content standard for digital geospatial metadata
FGDCContent Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata

Metadata content:

  • identification: Developer, purpose,
  • quality: processes, methods, accuracy
  • geography and spatial and temporal schema
  • spatial reference,and
  • distribution of digital geographic data.
