These attributes are mandatory for the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) Content Standard for Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). Where compatible the spirals provide xpath references for DIF, ECHO, ECS, DCAT, ISO, ISO-1 and FGDC documentation dialects.

FGDC for Data Discovery - Mandatory

The FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata includes fields in the Identification Information and Metadata Reference Sections that are mandatory for data discovery. In the graphical representation of the standard, these are yellow fields included in yellow sections.

Theme KeywordA word or phrase that describes some aspect of a resource. Can be one of several types.

Note: The general identification keywords usually have a type of "theme" and are refered to as "theme keywords". Other types and vocabularies are used for other information. Service Entry Resource Format (SERF) requires a Science and a Service GCMD Keyword. This concept is called Subject in the CSW Specification.
