ISO 19115 Catalog Services for the Web Report

This report identifies ISO metadata elements that support the Open Geospatial Consortium Catalog Services for the Web (CSW) Specification. The elements are listed in three groups: Core Queryables, Core Returnables, and Additional Queryables. The Rubric at the top of the report summarizes the results. Each spiral is represented by a row in the rubric. The columns show the % of the elements in that spiral that exist in the record. Click the spiral name for more details. This report is produced using this stylesheet. Please contact Ted Habermann if you have questions or suggestions.

Core Queryables Score: 10/12

The Open Geospatial Consortium Catalog Services for the Web (CSW) standard defines 12 "Core Queryables" that must be supported in any compliant implementation. Profiles of CSW map these queryables to concepts and xPaths for particular metadata dialects.

Core Returnables Score: 12/16

The Open Geospatial Consortium Catalog Services for the Web (CSW) standard defines 16 "Core Returnables" that must be supported in any compliant implementation. Profiles of CSW map these returnables to concepts and xPaths for particular metadata dialects.
