Element Description

The Tiling Identification System element defines a named two-dimensional tiling system related to the collection. 

Best Practices

A tiling identification system is a defined 2-D grid which covers the surface of the Earth. An example of a tiling identification system is the Worldwide Reference System (WRS) where the surface of the Earth is split into numbered paths and rows. The WRS-2 system is used to catalog Landsat data and is a popular way to search for Landsat data. Another example are the various MODIS grids, such as the MODIS Sinusoidal Tile Grid system which divides the Earth into 595 10 x 10 degree tiles.    

There are five sub-elements used to specify a tiling identification system. If provided, all of the sub-fields are required:

Tiling Identification System Name: This field identifies the name of the tiling identification system. The name must be selected from a controlled enumeration list which includes the following values: CALIPSO, MISR, MODIS Tile EASE, MODIS Tile SIN, WELD Alaska Tile, WELD CONUS Tile, WRS-1, WRS-2, Military Grid Reference System

Coordinate 1/ Minimum Value: Identifies the minimum value for one dimension (e.g. horizontal) of the two dimensional tiling system. 

Coordinate 1/ Maximum Value: Identifies the maximum value for one dimension (e.g. horizontal) of the two dimensional tiling system.

Coordinate 2/ Minimum Value: Identifies the minimum value for the other dimension (e.g. vertical) of the two dimensional tiling system.

Coordinate 2/ Maximum Value: Identifies the maximum value for the other dimension (e.g. vertical) of the two dimensional tiling system. 


Examples:

TilingIdentificationSystemName: MISR

Coordinate1/MinimumValue: 1

Coordinate2/MaximumValue: 233

Coordinate2/MinimumValue: 1 

Coordinate2/MaximumValue: 80


TilingIdentificationSystemName: MODIS Tile SIN

Coordinate1/MinimumValue: 0

Coordinate2/MaximumValue: 35

Coordinate2/MinimumValue: 0

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).

ARC Priority Matrix

Priority CategorizationJustification

Red = High Priority Finding

This element is categorized as highest priority when:

  • The tiling identification system name Tiling Identification System Name does not match an enumeration value (CALIPSO, MISR, MODIS Tile EASE, MODIS Tile SIN, WELD Alaska Tile, WELD CONUS Tile, WRS-1, WRS-2).
  • The tiling identification system Tiling Identification System provided is incorrect for the dataset.

Yellow = Medium Priority Finding

This element is categorized as medium priority when:

  • The tiling identification system name Tiling Identification System Name does not match an enumeration value when the metadata format is anything other than UMM-JSON (this field is not controlled in other metadata dialects).

Blue = Low Priority Finding

This element is categorized as medium low priority when:

  • A recommendation is made to add a tiling identification system to the metadata when appropriate.

Green = No Findings/Issues

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

Checks

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

The actual name of the tiling identification system (e.g. 'MODIS Tile SIN') goes in the first path listed. This field is not controlled in ISO, however, the UMM requires that the name be selected from a controlled enumeration list with the following options: CALIPSO, MISR, MODIS Tile EASE, MODIS Tile SIN, WELD Alaska Tile, WELD CONUS Tile, WRS-1, WRS-2.  

An EX_Extent id of "TilingIdentificationSystem" should be provided so that CMR can properly parse out the tiling identification system fields.

Similarly, a description field with the string "Tiling Identification System" should be provided, and the value of "gov.nasa.esdis.umm.tilingidentificationsystem" should be provided in gmd:CodeSpace field so that CMR can properly parse out the tiling identification system fields.
