Element Description

The Contact Group metadata element is used to provide contact information for a group associated with the dataset.  

There are 5 options for providing contact information in the UMM:

  1. Data Center
  2. Data Center/Contact Person
  3. Data Center/Contact Group
  4. Contact Person
  5. Contact Group

Details for each of these options are provided on a separate wiki page. This wiki page describes details for option 5 (Contact Group).

Note that the Contact Group element can also be nested under the Data Center element. As a rule of thumb, if a group is affiliated with a Data Center, then it is recommended that their contact info be provided under DataCenter/ContactGroup. If the group is not affiliated with a particular Data Center, then their contact information can be provided here.

Best Practices

Each Contact Group listed in the metadata must be affiliated with a Role. Providing a Role for the Contact Group is required and must be selected from a controlled vocabulary list. Multiple Roles may be assigned to the same group, if necessary. There are seven options for Role:

  1. DATA CENTER CONTACT: a group affiliated with the dataset. If the group is affiliated with a Data Center, then it is recommended that their contact information be provided under DataCenter/ContactGroup.   
  2. TECHNICAL CONTACT: a group with technical (expert) knowledge about the data product. 
  3. SCIENCE CONTACT: a group with technical (expert) knowledge about the science principles involved in deriving the data product.
  4. INVESTIGATOR: a group involved in the creation of the data product. For instance, this might be the principal investigator (PI) or co-PI of the project responsible for creating the data product.   
  5. METADATA AUTHOR: a group responsible for creating and/or maintaining the collection level and/or granule level metadata record(s) associated with the data product.
  6. USER SERVICES: the user services office at the organization responsible for archiving, distributing, originating or processing the data. If the group is affiliated with a Data Center, then it is recommended that their contact information be provided under DataCenter/ContactGroup.  
  7. SCIENCE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT: a group with knowledge of software(s) specifically developed for the data product.      

Other Contact Group metadata fields include:

Non Data Center Affiliation: This field can be used to specify the name of the organization the Contact Group is affiliated with. Providing a Non Data Center Affiliation is optional, however, is it recommended that this information be provided. 

Group Name: The name of the group. Providing a group name is required.

UUID: A Level 3 UUID of the data contact, (see wiki link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universally_unique_identifier#Version_4_.28random.29). 

Contact Information: Any relevant contact information for the group. Providing contact information is optional, however, it is recommended that at least one piece of contact information (such as a link, email or phone number) be provided. Some examples of contact information include: phone number, email, fax, related links, service hours, and contact instructions. See the element specification table below for full details.

Metadata Validation and QA/QC

All metadata entering the CMR goes through the below process to ensure metadata quality requirements are met. All records undergo CMR validation before entering the system. The process of QA/QC is slightly different for NASA and non-NASA data providers. Non-NASA providers include interagency and international data providers and are referred to as the International Directory Network (IDN).

Please see the expandable sections below for flowchart details.

    • Identify errors, discrepancies or omissions.
  • Automated Review

  • The Contact Information provided is incorrect.

Yellow = Medium Priority Finding

This element is categorized as medium priority when:

  • The Contact Group Related URL 'Description' element is left blank. It is highly recommended that a description be provided for each URL.
  • The Contact Group Related URL provided in the metadata redirectsit is recommended that the most current link always be provided.
  • The information provided in the Contact Group elements is better suited for the Data Center, Data Center/Contact Person, Data Center/Contact Group or Contact Person metadata elements.

Blue = Low Priority Finding

This element is categorized as low priority when:
