Overview:

This standard defines the DMF (DGIWG Metadata Foundation). It provides a Defence-community metadata profile for:

  • datasets (e.g. DGED dataset)
  • non-geographic datasets (e.g. Documents and Periodicals)
  • products (e.g. an output that is conformant to a Product Specification)
  • series (e.g. Town Plans)
  • services (e.g. Catalogue Service for the Web (CSW))
  • tiles (e.g.MGCP subregions)

It is based on the ISO 19100 series of metadata standards, which include:

  • ISO 19115
  • ISO 19115-1
  • ISO 19115-2
  • ISO 19115-3
  • ISO 19139

For those new to the subject, metadata is in addition to the geospatial data. Metadata captures background information such as:

  • content description
  • product specification
  • data source and version
  • producer and distributor’s references
  • scale
