For most of the layers in the CocosGIS, metadata was not supplied or was
incomplete or informal. In GA's efforts to supply metadata according to the
ANZLIC Core Metadata
standards, many elements were filled according to GA's understanding. Metadata should
therefore be considered as a preliminary version only. GA encourages data providers
to supply any updated, corrected or missing metadata elements. This can be done by
Cocos Islands GIS staff.
