Include a namespace and a code guarenteed to be unique in that namespace in the identifier. For example: gov.noaa.class:AERO100.

Elements Definition and Recommended Practice
Examples
1 citation 1 Citation for the resource, includes name, publication date, identifiers, originators and publishers. See CI_Citation
2 abstract 1 Brief narrative summary of the resource contents. Include summary information on general content and features; resource applications: GIS, CAD, image, database; geographic coverage: county/city name; time period of content: begin and end date or single date; and special data characteristics or limitations. See CharacterString
3 purpose 0..* Summary of intentions for which the resource was developed. See CharacterString
4 credit 0..* Recognition of those who contributed to the dataset. Do not include URLs here. Provide full citations in MD_AssociatedResource section. See CharacterString
5 status 0..* Status of resource development. Most common status values to use are 'completed', 'ongoing', 'planned' or 'underDevelopment'. Highly recommend populating this field. See MD_ProgressCode
6 pointOfContact 0..* Individuals and/or organizations available for questions about the resource. Use roleCode="pointOfContact". This should be a person at an archive or the originator of the resource. Provide contact details, such address, phone and email. See CI_Responsibility
7 spatialRepresentationType 0..* Object(s) used to represent the geographic information. See MD_SpatialRepresentationTypeCode
8 spatialResolution 0..* The spatial resolution (level of spatial detail) of the dataset. See MD_Resolution
9 temporalResolution 0..* The temporal resolution (level of temporal detail) of the dataset. See TM_PeriodDuration
10 topicCategory 0..* main theme(s) of the resource See MD_TopicCategoryCode
11 extent 0..* High-level thematic classifications to assist in the grouping and searching of data. Required when the hierarchyLevelName scopeCode is 'dataset'. Recommended when hierarchyLevelName scopeCode is 'series', 'fieldSession', or 'nonGeographicDataset'. The most applicable topics in NOAA are usually geoscientificInformation, climatologyMeteorologyAtmosphere, oceans or elevation. Repeat if more than one category is applicable. Keep the capitalization and spacing of the terms. See EX_Extent
12 additionalDocumentation 0..* Additional documentation related to the resource such as publications and users guides. See CI_Citation
13 processingLevel 0..* An identifier code that identifies the level of processing in the producers coding system. See MD_Identifier
14 resourceMaintenance 0..* Information about the frequency, scope, and responsible party for the updating of the resource. See MD_MaintenanceInformation
15 graphicOverview 0..* A small image that exemplifies the collective resource. The graphic file should be less than 500KB and 1000x1000 pixels. Provide URL to an image that can be rendered in browsers. See MD_BrowseGraphic
16 resourceFormat 0..* Information about the formats of the resource. This is independant of the distribution details and is useful to provide when the resource has a status of 'planned' or 'underDevelopment'. See MD_Format
17 descriptiveKeywords 0..* Commonly used words or phrases which describe the dataset. Optionally, the keyword type and a citation for the authoritative or registered resource of the keywords are also provided. See MD_Keywords
18 resourceSpecificUsage 0..* Basic information about specific application(s) for which the resource(s) has been or is being used by different users. See MD_Usage
19 resourceConstraints 0..* The limitations or constraints on the use of or access to the resource. See MD_Constraints
20 associatedResource 0..* The citations and identifiers of associated resources, such as projects and documents. See MD_AssociatedResource
