Registry Working Group WP3 (Metadata Specifications)

Early Versions of VOResource (≤ 0.8.3)

For more detailed information (particularly if you are not used to looking at XML Schema), please see the following additional resources:

VOResource Overview (version 0.8.3)
an overview of the schema containing high-level diagrams, a summary of major changes from the last version, and pointers to more detailed documentation.
an example instance file describing several resources associated with the NCSA Astronomy Digital Image Library (ADIL), including 3 services for accessing the data.
Schema Documentation
You can interactive browse automatically generated documentation by following the "XMLSpy" or "xs3p" links in the tables above.

Below is earlier versions of VOResource and supporting information that are deprecated by the proposal above. The 2nd schema below holds metadata (roughly) specific to the SIA protocol.

  • VOResource.xsd: Versions: 0.1

To help folks interpret these schemas, I've prepared some additional resources:

  • An overview document that explains the major components and structure of the schemas; you may find the XMLSpy diagrams particularly helpful. It also gives a summary of the overall approach used to define metadata within XML Schema.
  • A sample XML instance document shows how to describe an organization, a data collection, and services using this schema. It shows how metadata from different schemas can be combined into a single document. (See overview document for more description.)
  • A Metadata Dictionary generated automatically directly from the XSD file using an XSL stylesheet.
