Over deze norm
Establishes a conceptual schema for metadata. Identifies those data which are mandatory for describing geographic datasets, the minimum set of metadata. Gives examples of how the standard may be applied but does not provide instructions or techniques for its implementation and accordingly does not concern itself with the construction of databases for holding metadata. Is designed primarily for use with digital geographic datasets but the principles can also be used to describe geographic datasets in other forms, such as paper maps or lists. Is applicable for a range of uses. It allows the geographic dataset to be described in a constant way which makes it easy to maintain a metadata catalogue service even from remote location. Allows metadata to be described for a number of purposes such as documentation and inclusion in a transfer file and for comparing and exploring geographic datasets.
