CDC Environmental Public Health Tracking Metadata Subgroup Meeting Sharon Shin, Metadata Coordinator, FGDC April 19, 2007 1-2 pm Eastern
ISO 19115/North American Profile Activities The US and Canada continue the development of an identical content profile of ISO 19115. Committee (ANSI, CSB) Review ended March 16, 2007. Public Review scheduled for Summer 2007. US: Submission to American National Standards Institute: Fall 2007. ANSI review, vote, ?adoption.
Next Steps: FGDC Standards Working Group will recognize or adopt North American Profile after ANSI adoption. Clearinghouse applications already staged for ISO based metadata.
FGDC to ISO 19115 Crosswalk Version 4 is the most current version. Changes since V4 only in the “no-match” section. No updates to this document are planned. Crosswalk effort led to conversion tool.
FGDC to ISO Conversion Tool XML- conversion format. Conversion tool format: XSLT Standalone. Plans to include source code. Conversion tool to be delivered via shareware site. Available Fall 2007. Announced through FGDC.gov and FGDC Metadata Working Group.
Terminology FGDC Sections Elements Compound Elements Domains ISO / NAP Classes Subclasses Attributes Domain * Compound Elements and Subclasses both represent hierarchical containers for elements/attributes. However, the Subclass level can include actual data elements/attributes while Compound Elements operate only as container headings.
Obligation: FGDC to ISO FGDC: Mandatory Mandatory-if-applicable Optional ISO/NAP: Mandatory Conditional Optional
Major NAP Classes Metadata Entity Set Information Identification Information Dataset Identification Service Identification Constraints Legal Constraints Security Constraints Data Quality Information Maintenance Information Spatial Representation Information Vector Spatial Representation Grid Spatial Representation Reference System Information Content Information Feature Catalog Coverage Information Portrayal Catalogue Information Distribution Information Application Schema Information
ISO 19115 / NAP and other ISO Standards The NAP editing team is including content from the referenced standards to enable users to implement the NAP without procuring the referenced standards. ISO 19108 Geographic Information- Temporal Schema
Training Opportunities NSDI Training Project- download training resources. North American Profile training materials, tenative plans. Three to four modules fully annotated for trainer’s use. Module to use with NAP to develop agency template. FGDC to ISO conversion tool link. Distance/Elearning system- Fall-Winter 2007. NSDI Training Project modules converted to e-learning.
