Usability is the extent to which the data can be applied to achieve the user’s goals. The usability of a dataset depends on the completeness and compatibility of the metadata. Thus, the more detailed the metadata, the more the data can be effectively utilized.
This sub-section aims to clearly depict usability documentation needs and concepts and map to them in the different dialects — thereby increasing completeness and compatibility and by default, the usability of the data.
