ISO 19115 SpiralTracker Report

This report identifies ISO metadata elements described in spirals of documentation development described in Creating Good Documentation. Together these spirals build a strong foundation for high-quality documentation. The ISO Standard includes a number of options for building on that foundation by addressing specific scientific needs. See Use Cases to CRUD for some examples.

The elements are listed by name and are followed by M, C, or O if they are Mandatory, Conditional or Optional. They are followed by UDD (attribute name) if they are included in the NetCDF Attribute Convention for Dataset Discovery.

The ISO 19115 Standard recommends Core Elements for inclusion in metadata. This tool tests also conformance with those recommendations.

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 metadata support if you have questions or suggestions.

The tables included below include xPaths that give the locations of the elements included in the rubric in the ISO XML schema.

Identification Score: 9/9

The Identification Spiral sets the stage for discovery using text search engines. It includes a unique identifier for the metadata, a title, an abstract, theme keywords and contact information for the metadata and the dataset.

Score Attribute (Count) Description Recommended Practice Path
1 Metadata Identifier
O, UDD (id)
A unique phrase or string which uniquely identifies the metadata file. Each metadata record shall include a character string as a unique identifier. There are two general approaches to ensuring uniqueness for these identifiers:
1. use a universal unique identifier (UUID), to distinguish it from other resources.
2. Include a namespace and a code guarenteed to be unique in that namespace in the identifier. For example:
gov.noaa.class:AERO100
In this case gov.noaa.class is a namespace and AERO100 is a code guaranteed to be unique in that namespace.
It seems likely that the upcoming revision of ISO 19115 will support MD_Identifiers as metadata identifiers. More...

Extent Score: 4/5

The Extent Spiral defines the spatial and temporal extent of the dataset. This information can be displayed on maps and timelines and used in spatial searches. The ISO standard supports the definition of multiple extents for each dataset. In order to simplify the process of identifying the bounding extent, it is recommended that the id attribute be set = "boundingExtent".

1 Resource Spatial Extent
C, UDD (geospatial_lat_min max, geospatial_lon_min max)
