  1. ISO/IEC JTC1/SC32/WG2 N1531R1 11179-3 Edition 3Metadata registry (MDR) Ray Gates May 12, 2011

  2. Agenda • MDR Approach • Changes in Edition 3 • UML packages and Conformance • Changes to types of Metadata Items • Changes to Identification region • Changes to Designation & Definition region • Changes to Administration/Registration region • New in Edition 3 • Concept Systems • Binary Relations

  3. MDR Approach • Specification of a metamodel for registering metadata • Common facilities apply to all metadata types • Identification, Designation & Definition , Registration • Description of specific types of metadata • Data Description – Data Elements and Data Element Concepts, Conceptual and Value Domains • Concept Systems (new in Edition 3) and Classification Schemes

  4. UML Packages & Conformance

  5. Use of UML Packages in MDR • Edition 2 divided the metamodel into regions for descriptive purposes only • Edition 3 uses UML packages to represent regions of the metamodel • Shows dependencies between regions more clearly • Enables finer-grained conformance criteria to be specified

  6. MDR package dependencies

  7. Conformance levels • Conformance may be claimed for a set of data structures and/or datatypes for clauses: • clause 7 Identification, Designation and Definition • clause 9 Concepts • clause 10 Binary Relations • clause 11 Data Description . • Conformance may be claimed for a registry or for a registry software system for clauses: • clause 8 Registration • clause 12 Basic attributes.

  8. Types of metadata items

  9. Types of metadata items • Finer-grained typing of metadata • In Edition 2, every metadata item had to be recorded as an Administered Item • all items subclassed from Administered_Item • Edition 3 is more light-weight and supports selective typing • when recording an item in a registry, apply the desired typing, which can be changed over time

  10. Edition 2 Administered Items In Edition 2, all specified metadata objects are Explicitly subclassed from Administered_Item.

  11. Edition 3 types of metadata items Registered_Item is an abstract class. Only it’s subclasses can be instantiated. In Edition 3, the specified types are available to be applied to any metadata item , as desired.

  12. changes to identification region

  13. Single vs. Multiple Identifiers • Edition 2 allowed only a single identifier per metadata item • Edition 3 allows multiple identifiers per metadata item, and requires an associated namespace be specified for each identifier • Supporting multiple identifiers allows metadata items to be shared across registries that use different identification schemes • Edition 3 simplifies the structure of the identifier and supplements it with a Namespace

  14. Identification in Edition 2

  15. Identification in Edition 3

  16. Changes to Designation & definition region

  17. New for Designations and Definitions • Edition 2 allowed one Designation and one Definition to be specified as ‘preferred’ • Edition 3 supports different Acceptability ratings to be specified in different contexts • preferred • admitted • deprecated • obsolete • superseded • Edition 3 supports recording Naming Conventions • Edition 3 renames ‘name’ to ‘sign’

  18. Edition 2 Designation & Definition

  19. Edition 3 Designation & Definition

  20. Changes to registration region

  21. Edition 2 Administration region

  22. Edition 3 Registration region Should we associate Submission_Record with Identified_Item instead of Registered_Item?

  23. Concept systems

  24. Concept Systems overview (1) • Support for Concept Systems • using simple relations and/or complex assertions • with examples using • Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) • Object Role Modelling (ORM) • Web Ontology Language (OWL) • Common Logic Interchange Format (CLIF)

  25. Concept Systems overview (2) • Concept System subsumes • Classification Scheme • Representation Class • All Concepts must have source Concept System, but it may simply the Registry • Concept systems can reference or import other concept systems

  26. Edition 3 Concept System

  27. Binary Relations
