Element Description

The Contact Person metadata element is used to provide contact information for an individual 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 4 (Contact Person).

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


Best Practices

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

  1. DATA CENTER CONTACT: an individual affiliated with the dataset. If the individual is affiliated with a Data Center, then it is recommended that their contact information be provided under DataCenter/ContactPerson. 
  2. TECHNICAL CONTACT: an individual with technical (expert) knowledge about the data product. 
  3. SCIENCE CONTACT: an individual with technical (expert) knowledge about the science principals involved in deriving the data product.
  4. INVESTIGATOR: a person 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 person responsible for creating and/or maintaining the collection level and/or granule level metadata records associated with the data product.
  6. USER SERVICES: an individual representative of the user services office at the organization responsible for archiving, distributing, originating or processing the data. If the individual is affiliated with a Data Center, then it is recommended that their contact information be provided under DataCenter/ContactPerson.  
  7. SCIENCE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT: a person with knowledge of software specifically developed for the data product.      

Other Contact Person metadata fields include:

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

First Name: The first name of the contact person. Providing a first name is optional.  

Middle Name: The middle name of the contact person. Providing a middle name is optional.

Last Name: The last name of the contact person. Providing a last name is required.

Contact Information: Any relevant contact information for the contact person. 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.

  • The Contact Mechanism Type does not align with the UMM-Common enumeration values (Direct Line, Email, Facebook, Fax, Mobile, Modem, Primary, TDD/TTY Phone, Telephone, Twitter, U.S. toll free, Other).
  • The Contact Information provided is incorrect.

Yellow = Medium Priority Finding

This element is categorized as medium priority when:

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

Blue = Low Priority Finding

This element is categorized as low priority when:

  • The Contact Person Related URL is provided via http when https is available.

Green = No Findings/Issues

The element is provided and follows all applicable criteria specified in the best practices section above.

ARC Automated Checks

ARC uses the pyQuARC library for automated metadata checks. Please see the pyQuARC GitHub for more information.

While this field is not controlled in ECHO 10, it is highly recommended that one of the enumeration values for ContactPerson/Role be selected to populate this field (Data Center Contact, Technical Contact, Science Contact, Investigator, Metadata Author, User Services, Science Software Development)

When translating from ECHO 10 to UMM, the CMR will attempt to map the value provided in this field to one of the UMM Roles. Therefore, providing one of the UMM Role enumeration values will prevent translation errors from occurring & will ensure that the Contact Person Role is displayed appropriately in the Earthdata Search Client.
