Section 4 - Documentation Selection Scenarios

From Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)


A number of national and international organizations have published lists of metadata elements required, recommended, or suggested for particular use cases (recommendations). Most groups that are developing metadata have multiple needs (e.g. discoverability, accessibility, usability, and understanding) so multiple recommendations are relevant as they select priorities. We are developing tools to help clarify these choices in a set of "Selection Scenarios": groups of recommendations that fit together to address a broad set of requirements.

This section shows results for several example selection scenarios. As interest grows, it will facilitate sharing of selection rationals, scenarios and results.
