D. Warzel6 Terms and Definitions for ISO/IEC 11179 Administered Item: A registry item for which administrative information is recorded in an Administration Record Data Element: A unit of data for which the definition, identification, representation, and permissible values are specified by means of a set of attributes. Data Element Concept: An idea that can be represented in the form of a data element, described independently of any particular representation. Value Domain: A set of attributes describing representational characteristics of instance data with or without enumerated permissible values. Data Element: A unit of data for which the definition, identification, representation, and permissible values are specified by means of a set of attributes. Data Element Concept: An idea that can be represented in the form of a data element, described independently of any particular representation. Value Domain: A set of attributes describing representational Characteristics of instance data with or without permissible values. Value Meaning: A member of the set of finite allowed inventory of notions that can be categorized for a conceptual domain. Permissible Value: An expression of a value meaning in a specific value domain Representation Class: A classification of data elements based upon the type of representational form. Conceptual Domain: A set of possible value meanings of a data element expressed without representation. Data Element Representation: The part of a data element having A value domain, datatype,and other representational specifications.
D. Warzel7 ISO/IEC 11179 Parts 1-6: Information technology – Specification and Standardization of data elements –A metamodel for data element metadata –Standard by which to convey semantic, syntactic and lexical meaning Human and machine understandable Unambiguous What is ISO/IEC 11179?
D. Warzel8 ISO/IEC 11179 Information technology Standard ISO/IEC 11179 Part 1: Framework for the specification and standardization of data elements ISO/IEC 11179 Part 2: Classification for data elements ISO/IEC 11179 Part 3: Registry metamodel and basic attributes ISO/IEC 11179 Part 4: Rules and Guidelines for the Formulation of Data Elements ISO/IEC 11179 Part 5: Naming and Identification Principles for Data Elements ISO/IEC 11179 Part 6: Registration of data elements Publically Available from: http://isotc.iso.ch/livelink/livelink/fetch/2000/2489/Ittf_Home/PubliclyAvailableSt andards.htm??Redirect=1

D. Warzel10 What is this datum? –Provides concrete guidance on the creation and maintenance of discrete data element attributes and metadata (semantics) enabling the formulation of data elements in a consistent, standard manner – Metadata Repository/Registry –Framework for Data element standardization and registration allow the creation of a shared data environment in much less time and with much less effort than it takes for conventional data management methodologies. Adoption of 11179 Allowed us to Get on with itAdoption of 11179 Allowed us to Get on with it Why ISO/IEC 11179?

D. Warzel15 NCICB Concept Class Common Attributes Concept Class Administered Item attributes + Concept Unique Identifier Pointer to an externally defined concept Concept Definition Source Names the source terminology/ontology/vocabulary Concept Relationship Semantic Order of the concepts NOTE: ISO describes a Concept Relationship as a semantic link among two or more concepts. There is a subtlety in our implementation. In caDSR use the concept relationships as more of a derivation rule, naming the order of the concepts - not semantic relationships in an ontologic or object model sense of relationship. Object Class, Property, Representation term, Qualifier terms, Value Domains
D. Warzel16 Why vocabularies/ontology important? Goal: Semantically unambiguous, interoperability Data Element curators are not necessarily vocabulary experts NCI had a terminology and vocabulary services group: EVS Semantic integration is achieved by tying Standard vocabulary identifier codes to the caDSR metadata The ISO 11179 provides the framework – we were looking for something that could be computed without a human having to read and interpret definitions By abstracting the curation of concepts in caDSR and instead relying on external vocabularies
D. Warzel17 EVS and caDSR Distinctions caDSR is a metadata repository –maintains metadata to permit a user to locate the correct data element defining the characteristics of a piece of datum, an instance of a specific concept, in sufficient detail to be collected and stored on a computer EVS is a terminology server –provides services for synonymy, mapping between vocabularies, hierarchical structures, Subconcepts, Superconcepts, Roles, Semantic type, etc.

D. Warzel19 caDSR Overview NCI Data Element Metadata repository and registry Based on the ISO/IEC 11179 Designed to integrate caCORE infrastructure Supports the development and deployment of Data Elements that are used as metadata descriptors, primarily for NCI-sponsored research, with an ever widening girth of end users Available as an open-source download
D. Warzel20 caDSR Tools Goals of caDSR Tools development: –Simplify development and creation of ISO/IEC 11179 compliant metadata by Data Element Curators and UML Modelers –Simplify consumption of Data Elements by end users and application developers –Enhance reuse of Data Elements for all –Enable semantic consistency across research domains –Support metadata life-cycle and governance processes
