How ISO Does It
Understanding the processing of datasets is critical to understanding their accuracy and applicability for certain tasks. The FGDC Standard provides a framework for tracking process steps that are applied to a dataset. The ISO Standard builds on that framework by adding a rationale element that allows processors to explain why process steps were done.
