USGIN ISO Metadata Profile


USGIN profile for using ISO19139 xml schema for ISO 19115 and ISO 19119 spatial metadata to describe geoscientific resources. ISO 19115 is a metadata content standard for describing spatial dataset and spatial dataset series. ISO 19119 is a metadata standard for describing spatial services. The USGIN profile for ISO 19139 follows the North American Profile (NAP) in most respects, except allowing multiple distributions and using the standard ISO codelists.The focus of the recommendations in the profile is to make metadata from catalog services (OGC CSW 2.0.2) interoperable.
