1 Comparison of CEN, FGDC and ISO standards for Ing. Jan Ruzicka Institute of Economics and Control Systems VŠB Technical university Ostrava 17. listopadu 15, Ostrava Poruba E mail:

2 CEN, FGDC, ISO Metadata data set identification (title, version, etc.)? overview (abstract, spatial schema, language, purpose of production, etc.)? quality elements (lineage, positional accuracy, etc.)? related documents? related data sets? spatial reference system? extent (spatial, temporal)? content (data structure, classification, etc.)? administrative (point of contact, distribution)? of (author, dates) 2

3 Compared standards Pre-standard "ENV 12657:1998 Geographic information Data description Metadata - CEN Working draft ISO/CD ISO Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata - FGDC 3

4 Structure and expressive expedients of standards - ISO Textual description organised in paragraphs UML (Unified Modelling Language) diagrams well-arranged do not give full description of elements Textual description organised in tables not well arranged necessary to UML diagrams short names (XML, SGML) 4

5 Structure and expressive expedients of standards - CEN Textual description organised in paragraphs EXPRESS-G schemas (diagrams) well - arranged do not give full description of elements EXPRESS schemas full description in textual form structured text Textual description organised in tables 5

6 Structure and expressive expedients of standards - FGDC Structured text well - arranged easily comprehensible simple structures full description in textual form easy to use without knowledge of UML or EXPRESS 6

7 Classification CEN - optional classification using thesaurus and thesaurus elements ISO - mandatory clsssification using category (list), optional by thesaurus FGDC - mandatory classification using thematic thesaurus FGDC and ISO do not give possibility to specify version and thesaurus administrator, CEN do not need classification - big defficiency 7

8 Administrative Point of contact CEN - optional, FGDC and ISO - mandatory Data access CEN - free text, FGDC, ISO - well -formed structure - access, usage and security of data Support services CEN - free text, ISO - what to update and update frequency, FGDC update frequency only 8

9 Metadata of FGDC requires author and description of access, usage and security - it useful for metainformation systems FGDC does not make difference between date of birth and update date 9

10 Mandatory elements CEN ISO FGDC language character set standard name standard version data set name abstract data set language data set character set spatial schema date of born date of update date of revision spatial extent temporal extent quality elements organisation point of contact category purpose of production frequency of updates restriction of access and usage

11 Conclusion ISO, FGDC - more concrete in description CEN - gives only themes how to describe elements FGDC, CEN - useful elements optional ISO - useful elements optional FGDC, CEN - well arranged documentation ISO - not well arranged documentation 11

12 Recommendation ISO - international standards ISO replaces CEN Metainformation systems based on CEN - have to move to ISO first phase: exchange in conformity to ISO, three main targets mandatory classification, mandatory point of contact and implementation of useful lists given by ISO standard Metainformation systems based on FGDC - in general - in conformity to ISO 12
