Work Package 3 (Rwp03): Metadata Specifications



The page provides links to documents resulting from the on-going work within the Work Package 3 (Metadata Specifications) of the Registry Working Group.


This WP is led by RayPlante with ElizabethAuden, SebastienDerriere, BobHanisch, CliveDavenhall, TonyLinde, ClivePage, ArnoldRots, RoyWilliams, and others.


A Resource is any entity that can be described and identified in a machine readable manner. With this general statement, a resource can be most anything, including a service or a data collection or something more abstract, such as a standard interface. In this work package, we will:

  1. Identify the pertinent information necessary for describing and locating a resource within a registry, satisifying the requirements set forth in RWP02.
  2. Provide a basic, extensible data model for describing resources within a registry.
  3. Develop an XML schema for rendering descriptions of resources in terms of the resource data model.

Although a resource could be anything, this WP should concentrate on describing high-level entities, such as organizations, data collections, and services; this is referred to as coarse-grain granularity. We should strive to keep the basic resource data model simple, reusing data model components (that might come out of the Data Models Working Group) where ever possible. At the same time, the data model needs to provide hooks to allow additional metadata to be included in order to describe more specific types of resources.
