In ISO 19115 a metadata record could include any number of hierarchyLevels and hoerarchyLevelNames but there was no mechanism for connection appropriate pairs. MD_MetadataScope was introduced in ISO 19115-1 in order to allow unambiguous association of scope codes and level names. Repeat if more than one scope is applicable to this metadata description.
|Elements||Domain||Definition and Recommended Practice||Examples|
|1||mdb:resourceScope||1||mcc:MD_ScopeCode||Scope of resource to which the metadata applies. Most common values to use are the following: 'dataset' for granule level, 'series' for collection level, 'nonGeographicDataset' for space weather, 'fieldSession' for cruises or surveys, 'service' for map services and 'model'.||An example is needed!|
|2||mdb:name||0..1||gco:CharacterString||The name of the hierarchy level.||An example is needed!|
