Description

This is a call for participation in the MIG temporary sub-group on Update of the Technical Guidelines for Metadata.

During consultation with EU member states on issues working on Implementation and maintenance of Inspire metadata, a number of issues have been identified that need to be reviewed and possible updates in the technical guidelines made. Example of these issues are:

  • A number of issues has been raised for the Metadata TG (e.g. issues concerning the metadata element useLimitation) that were not been fixed with the last update of the Metadata TG .
  • The guidelines for metadata for interoperability (aka metadata for evaluation and use) are currently contained in the data specifications rather than integrated in the Metadata TG.
  • The quality of the metadata harvested by the INSPIRE geoportal from the national discovery services is often quite poor, even if they are formally meeting the requirements of the metadata IRs.
  • The revised versions of the ISO standards on metadata needs to be addressed to give security in planning. Many implementations are based on the existing standards. Re-building these implementations would require an enormous amount of re-investment.
  • An analysis of metadata, which is created now with significant effort, should be made in order for the metadata to support additional use cases, than just the search for geodata and the allocation of information.

It has been agreed in the MIG-T meeting on 9-10/04/2014 that a sub-group should be formed to propose an update of the INSPIRE Metadata TG.

A detailed description of the scope, tasks and deliverables of the sub-group and the list of issue to be addressed are available in the attached Terms of Reference.

Nominations by MIG representatives and applications from the pool of experts should be posted as comments to this issue, specifying the following information:

The initial deadline for nominations and applications is 2014-10-24.

The virtual kick-off meeting will take place on Monday 2014-11-17, 14:00-16:30 (Central European Time, GMT+1).

The Specification is available at the address (unfortunately only in Croatian) http://www.nipp.hr/UserDocsImages//dokumenti/Specifikacija_metapodataka_NIPP-a_NIPP_MP_v21_20140808.pdf. The previous Metadata specification is available in English http://www.nipp.hr/UserDocsImages///dokumenti/Croatian%20NSDI%20Metadata%20Specifikacion_v.2.0.pdf (but, INSPIRE Metadata Implementing Rules (2013-10-29) are not included in this version. Also web pages on Croatian SDI/INSPIRE metadata profile are made http://listovi.dgu.hr/nippmetadata/index_engl.html.

#23 Updated by Michael Östling about 5 years ago

Name: Javier NOGUERAS ISO

E-mail:

Affiliation: Universidad de Zaragoza (Spain), Computer Science and Systems Engineering Department, Advanced Information Systems Research Group

Expertise:
- I have been involved in the design and development of CatMDEdit, an open source metadata editor specialized in geographic metadata.
- I have participated in national and international standardization bodies special group meetings for the approval and update of metadata standards: [2002-2005] member of CEN/ISSS Metadata/Dublin Core Workshop (MMI-DC); [2005-2010] member of CEN/TC 287 Geographic Information Working Group 5 on Spatial Data Infrastructures; [2005-] member of Spanish AEN/CTN148 Standardization Technical Committee on Digital Geographic Information; [2004-] member of “Metadata Working Subgroup” of the Spanish Spatial Data Infrastructure (IDEE)

Contributions:
I would be interested in the following topics:
- Improvement of the technical guidelines for recommending a better formalization of metadata content in order to facilitate later the work of discovery services. For instance, the generalised use of SKOS-based vocabularies (or similar Knowledge Organization Systems), and not only for subject-like properties, would promote the harmonization of content and as a consequence, an increase of the precision and recall of discovery services.
- Analysis of new metadata standards and formats for the implementation of INSPIRE metadata. The use of DCAT or RDF should be considered nowadays to take into account current initiatives like Linked Data or Open Data.
- Analysis of new use cases of metadata, where metadata content could help in the automatic exploitation of associated data. For instance, a file with drought index raw data could be accompanied with metadata explaining (or referring to) how these data should interpreted, i.e. a translation between numerical range values, and qualitative drought levels. Metadata standards like ISO19115 have elements to refer to feature catalogs, which could be probably used for this purpose, but there has been little success so far to make this idea operative.
