Element Description

The Entry Title element states the title of the dataset. 

Best Practices

The Entry Title should be a descriptive, formal title of the dataset. The Entry Title should not be the same as the Short Name element. It is recommended that the Entry Title follow a mixed case capitalization scheme and that the use of special characters (such as underscores) and acronyms be kept to a minimum, if possible. In order to make titles descriptive, important elements about the data may be included, such as: parameters measured, geographic location, instrument, project, temporal coverage, etc. 

Examples:

"The San Joaquin Valley Air Quality Study (SJVAQS) Atmospheric Signatures, Predictions, and Experiments (AUSPEX) Database"

"Aquarius Official Release Level 3 Sea Surface Salinity Smoothed Standard Mapped Image Monthly Data V4.0"

"The Next Generation Weather Radar (NEXRAD) Level II, III, and IV Data Products"

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.


  • Manual Review
    • Identify errors, discrepancies or omissions.
    • Proof all content for conciseness and readability.
  • Automated Review
    • Check that the field has been populated.
    • Check that the field length is not greater than 1,030 characters.
    • Check that the field value does not match the Entry ID.
  • This element is required
  • Must contain at least 1 character and be no longer than 1,030 characters in length
  • The Entry Title must be unique per data provider

ARC Priority Matrix

Priority CategorizationJustification

Red = High Priority Finding

This element is categorized as highest priority when:

  • No Entry Title is provided.
  • The Entry Title is identical to the Short Name.
  • The Entry Title is in an abbreviated format (similar, but not necessarily identical to, the Short Name).
  • The Entry Title contains a spelling error.
  • The Entry Title includes incorrect information about the dataset (e.g. mismatch between data set landing page and the Entry Title).
Yellow = Medium Priority Finding

Not applicable

Blue = Low Priority Finding

This element is categorized as low priority when:

  • A mixed-case capitalization scheme is not used.

Green = No Findings/Issues

The element is provided, and is a formal title for the dataset (i.e. it is not the same as the short name and is free of grammatical and content errors).

ARC Automated Checks

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

The first path specified to the left is optional in ISO. The CMR does not read this value, but when it generates ISO 19115-2 MENDS records it will write the title to this location.

The second path specified to the left is required in ISO.
