Standard metadata and vocabularies for our data catalogue
At Geoscience Australia we have an enterprise data catalogue, eCat, where data products can be found. This catalogue uses a metadata profile based on the ISO19115:2014 standard which allows us to describe our data using an agreed community standard. We are also standardising the geoscience keywords to better enable search of the catalogue.
The schema and vocabularies used in the eCat are available
The metadata standard previously implemented and used widely in the Australian and New Zealand spatial community was the ANZLIC Metadata Profile which was based on the ISO19115:2005 version. This standard is still current but will be superseded when the ISO19115-3 is finally published sometime in 2018-19.
