Documenting Projects

From Federation of Earth Science Information Partners
Jump to: navigation, search

The Arctic Research Mapping Application (ARMAP) brings together a multi-disciplinary collection of nearly three thousand NSF funded projects focused on characterizing and understanding the Arctic environment. These projects are described in a standard and structured way using a metadata profile developed during 2011 by the Alaska Data Integration working group (ADIwg). This profile was originally derived from the FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (documentation from the original ADIwg wiki will be available at https://github.com/adiwg/project-metadata-fgdc). It includes a number of fundamental documentation concepts that, taken together, have been proven to make up a successful framework for providing access to information about NSF funded projects in the Arctic region and their geographic distribution. The fundamental project documentation concepts and how these concepts might be shared across a broader community using other metadata dialects are described here.

Project Identification

Identifying projects unambiguously requires titles and identifiers.

Place KeywordA comma separated list of key words and phrases that give the location of the resource.

Note: Some dialects include keywords, but they do not include mechanisms for identifying the type. In those cases it is difficult to unambiguously identify place keywords.

xPath Note: The xPaths included in this table use several wildcards. // means any path, so //gmd:CI_ResponsibleParty indicates a gmd:CI_ResponsibleParty anywhere in an XML file. /*/ indicates a single level with several possible elements. This usually indicates one of several concrete realizations of an abstract object. For example /*/gmd:identificationInfo could be gmd:MD_Metadata/gmd:identificationInfo or gmi:MI_Metadata/gmd:identificationInfo and gmd:identificationInfo//*/gmd:descriptiveKeywords could be gmd:identificationInfo/gmd:MD_DataIdentification/gmd:descriptiveKeywords or gmd:identificationInfo/srv:SV_ServiceIdentification/gmd:descriptiveKeywords. Fit: The fit of the dialect path with the concept is estimated on a scale of 1 = excellent two-way fit, 2 = one-way fit or some other problem, 3 - extension required.
