The root element of the ISO Metadata Standards contains information about the metadata and sections that contain other information.

Elements Domain Definition and Recommended Practice
1 mdb:metadataIdentifier 0..1 mcc:MI_Identifier Code that uniquely identifies this metadata record, assigned and maintained by the custodian of the metadata record. Recommended Practice: value of identifier is usually the same as the name of the metadata file - for example C00500.xml. There are two general approaches to ensuring uniqueness for these identifiers: 1. use a universal unique identifier (UUID), to distinguish it from other resources. 2. Include a namespace and a code guarenteed to be unique in that namespace in the identifier. For example: gov.noaa.class:AERO100. In this case gov.noaa.class is a namespace and AERO100 is a code guaranteed to be unique in that namespace
2 mdb:defaultLocale 0..1 lan:PT_Locale Default language, country of origin and characterSet used in metadata. Locale is mandatory when more than one language is used in free text descriptions
3 mdb:parentMetadata 0..1 cit:CI_Citation Citation to a parent level metadata record
4 mdb:metadataScope 0..* mdb:MD_MetadataScope Scope of resource to which the metadata applies. Now includes an MD_ScopeCode and a name for a hierarchy level. Repeat if more than one scope is applicable to this metadata description.
5 mdb:contact 1..* cit:CI_Responsibility Individual and/or organization responsible for metadata creation and maintenance. Use roleCode="pointOfContact". Provide contact details, such address, phone and email.
6 mdb:dateInfo 1..* cit:CI_Date Date of last metadata update. Highly recommend revisiting the metadata content annually to ensure that all the information is still relevant. Use ISO 8601 extended format: YYYY-MM-DD or YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS.
7 mdb:metadataStandard 0..* cit:CI_Citation Citation of the metadata standard used.
8 mdb:metadataProfile 0..* cit:CI_Citation Citation of the profile(s) of the metadata standard used.
9 mdb:alternativeMetadataReference 0..* cit:CI_Citation Citation to alternative metadata for the resource.
10 mdb:otherLocale 0..* lan:PT_Locale Alternative language, country of origin and characterSet used in metadata.
11 mdb:metadataLinkage 0..* cit:CI_OnlineResource Online location information for the metadata.
12 mdb:spatialRepresentationInfo 0..* msr:MD_SpatialRepresentation Spatial representation properties for Gridded datasets.
13 mdb:referenceSystemInfo 0..* mrs:MD_ReferenceSystem Identification of the horizontal projections, vertical datums and temporal reference systems used. Mandatory if spatialRepresentationType in dataIdentification is vector, grid, or tin.
14 mdb:metadataExtensionInfo 0..* mex:MD_MetadataExtension Description of extended metadata fields and structure.
15 mdb:identificationInfo

1..* mri:MD_DataIdentification
   - or-
srv:SV_ServiceIdentification
Choose one and repeat identificationInfo if needed.
16 mdb:contentInfo 0..* mrc:MD_ContentInformation information about the feature catalogue, or descriptions of the coverage and the image data characteristics.
17 mdb:distributionInfo 0..* mrd:MD_Distribution nformation about acquiring the resource.
18 mdb:dataQualityInfo 0..* mdq:DQ_DataQuality (ISO 19157-2) Data quality quality reporting for the resource.
19 mdb:resourceLineage 0..* mrl:LI_Lineage Data processing history (provenance) for the resource.
20 mdb:portrayalCatalogueInfo 0..* mpc:MD_PortrayalCatalogue A portrayal catalogue is a collection of defined symbols used to depict humans, features on a map.
21 mdb:metadataConstraints 0..* mco:MD_Constraints The limitations or constraints regarding the use and access of the metadata.
22 mdb:applicationSchemaInfo 0..* mas:MD_ApplicationSchemaInformation Information about the conceptual schema of the dataset.
23 mdb:metadataMaintenance 0..1 mmi:MD_MaintenanceInformation Document recent metadata record edits. When the metadata is generated automatically, use this section to document the source and transform tool in the maintenanceNote field.
24 mdb:acquisitionInformation 0..* mac:MI_AcquisitionInformation Information about the platforms and instruments collecting the data.
