ISO Compliance Reports
How ISO Does It
Standards are critical for data understanding and sharing. The ISO Standard include three types of data quality reports. The first, the DQ_ConformanceResult, describes how the dataset was tested for conformance to a published standard and whether the dataset passed the test. The second, the DQ_QuantitativeResult, provides a mechanism for describing the results of a quantitative quality evaluation. Finally, the QE_CoverageResult (from ISO 19115-2), allows a quality result to be expressed as a spatial object. For example, if a gridded dataset has an associated grid of quality flags, that quality grid could be described here. Note also that the coverage results have an associated file and format.

- Ken Casey – at least we should
- Karl Benedict - Compliance for delivery, also a quality attribute in terms of compliance OR variance vs. standards
- Ed Armstrong But only to point we are making valid XML records etc.
- Rudy Husar
- Jeff Arnfield – Yes/No: - stds would be helpful in exchange of metadata and in its collection. No bonus points for compliance yet, though, since stds thus far have been only loosely and sporadically applied.
